The first time I sat at a pottery wheel I genuinely felt like I was at home.
It felt natural and comfortable. And I knew what I wanted to make. I’ve been making nearly every day since then.
The objects I make feel more like discoveries than designs. I know their forms and textures before they exist.
I feel very little ownership of them once they exist.
I tend towards straight lines and simple forms that allow me to then experiment with texture, tone, colour, groups and scale.
I gravitate towards white and grey but find unexpected happiness in green and blue.
I want to make things that are used every day. Things that become part of daily routines and rituals. Things that become part of a Sunday morning breakfast, get bought out when a best friend comes over for a chat or sit every night on a bedside table.
I want to make things that are allowed to change over time. Not perfect, but that have character and age.see what I made!
