About

The nosey mungo story

It all began in the 80's. As a child I'd spend my time either making something or outside in search of wildlife. My favourite things on TV were David Attenborough documentaries and everything by Aardman - I was convinced I was going to be the next Nick Park.

​The urge to create has always stayed with me but I ended up following a path in science. I studied Geography with Biology at university and then returned to do a masters in Biodiversity Surveying. This eventually led to an amazing job at the Sussex Wildlife Trust where I deal with biodiversity data and the geeky side of nature conservation.

In 2010 the onset of fibromyalgia forced me to cut down my hours at work. I needed an alternative focus and clay was the answer. After several pottery classes I was hooked and what started as a hobby quickly turned in to a business when people liked my work enough to want to buy it.

Nine years later, nosey mungo has arrived. As children this is what our mum called us if we were being too inquisitive but that's what I hope will be the driver of new creativity.
