About me

I am a designer and maker and lovingly handcraft ceramics inspired by memories and nostalgia.

My range is a collection of delicate porcelain buttons, jewellery, pretty home wear and decoration all individually handcrafted and created from my studio in the heart of the city centre in Carlisle, Cumbria.

I have a love for vintage and nostalgic memorabilia such as vintage buttons found in my Grandma's button box, scraps of lace, black and white photographs, stamps and letters, which I then like to translate through my pieces, exploring surface decoration and form. I use many different techniques to achieve this such as imprinting, screen printing and the use of decal transfers which are produced through my own drawings and collages of postage markings and letters. Each piece i create is individual therefore will always slightly vary to the next.

Since graduating in 2009 with a first class B.A HONS  in Contemporary Applied Arts, i started selling my collection of items through shops and galleries throughout the U.K. I have also taken part in many exhibitions and events and in 2011 i was delighted to have been awarded the Editors Choice Award at the Country Living Christmas Fair in London.
