A series of craft work in focus from Welsh ceramic makers
Series curation: Wendy Lawrence


I make a range of functional earthenware pottery. Inspired by, but not bound to, traditional English and European slipware. Pots intended to be used and enjoyed.

Predominantly hand thrown and also using slab and mold techniques. I like to leave marks which highlight the qualities of the clay in its soft / wet state and to capture moments of the process.

I studied at U.W.E. Bristol 1995–98. I then worked for a short time at Gladstone Pottery Museum before finding work as a production thrower in Bristol. Only since moving to Wales in 2015 have I started to develop my own work.

Works are available to purchase
