My work is an exploration of simple forms and shapes in functional pottery. All my current vessels are hand thrown in porcelain and trimmed down to give them a weightless character influenced by both Asian and Scandinavian aesthetics, they are coated in a clear, matte glaze to enhance the appearance of the food and drink they will contain.
