Having trained at Edinburgh College of Art and left with a BA(Hons) in Applied Arts, I have continued to teach in higher education and beyond whilst maintaining a busy studio practice.
I am a Scottish maker specialising in porcelain. Carving into the clay with the tradition glass cutting technique battuto, I craft a collection of functional tableware and home accessories that emphasize porcelain’s hallmark: delicate translucency. Teapots, cups and bowls thus become highly textured and tactile, begging to be handled. The areas where I have partially carved some of the clay away subtlety reveal the colour glaze inside the exterior.
The forms I create are another important element of my work. I am naturally drawn to designing objects that have a function. I enjoy the relationship between the user and object. Many of the pieces I produce often immerge from abstract details in art, architecture and/or interior design.
