Raised in the leafy suburbs, my connection with nature started early. I spent the days in my tree house and evenings sky gazing, under the spell of the moon. 

At university I studied astronomy, archaeology and prehistoric art. It shaped me in a way no other classes have before. Unsurprisingly, my creative path led me to pottery, an art form that dates back to the Neolithic time period.

I am drawn to the tactile nature of clay - there's something innately rewarding and primitive about building things by hand using mud from the earth, then setting it alight.

We owe everything to fire, it's what separates us from our simian ancestors. It's the reason we grew, developed and began to explore the furthermost parts of this planet. 

My art is inspired by my own explorations and the rugged beauty of the natural world. My aim is to create pieces that represent these interests of mine, with minimal environmental impact.

My clay works are all handmade, the crystals are ethically sourced and the wood is sustainably harvested. 

Thanks for dropping by!
