Original Artworks in Ceramics and textiles from the Heart of England
I have had a passion for the hand-crafted since being introduced to clay at primary school. This carried on to secondary school where I incorporated ceramics into my art studies. Then the world of work intervened, although I managed to carry on with my other love of watercolour painting in the evenings. 
 
After too many years doing admin and office jobs to pay the bills, yet another redundancy made me decide to work for myself rather than others. I started by running clay workshops at a local primary school, then expanding to run clay workshops for adults and children at both my studio and schools, enabling me to pass on my passion for pots. This opened the door for me to meet many lovely like-minded people. 
 
For a couple of years I offered clay workshops, paint-a-pot and parties, but as this left little time to produce my own work, I retrenched into my home workshop where I concentrated on producing my own animal inspired handcrafted sculpture work with a hint of humour.As time passed I expanded the range including artworks in felt and textiles, ceramic and silver jewellery, as well as decorative and practical items in earthenware and porcelain.

As well as our range of pieces, we can also create commission pieces, please contact us for futher information.

 Selling these pieces through retail partners and craft fairs gave me great satisfaction, and as any artist will tell you, there's nothing better than seeing people admiring your work with a big grin on their faces!
