"Form without colour is like a body without a soul" - Owen Jones
I am a studio ceramist and designer maker from Wales, I make functional tableware and decorative
panels. Colour, tactility and material quality are central to my work, using porcelain and stoneware clays.
Travel is an important influence of my palette and the forms that I make. Over the years I have developed
a vast colour library of ceramic materials, which I have gathered when 'colour mapping' by undertaking colour surveys in chromatic cities such as Barcelona, Buenos Aires and Athens.
The forms of my tableware are designed with a consideration for balance and harmony. Using glazed and
unglazed ceramic surfaces, I strive to produce long lasting items that intimately consider material quality,
colour and functionality. My wares are to be used and cherished, encouraging positive and unique
My surface decoration looks to the traditional pattern making techniques of stencilling, block printing and
paper cutting, which I use in conjunction with modern technologies such as laser and plotter cutting. I am
interested in how these sensibilities cross over into ceramic materials.
Having achieved a First-Class honours degree in the Applied Arts and a MA in Ceramics from the Royal
College of Art, I am now based at 401 and a Half Studios in South West London.
