Festival: 2018

Drawn to the purity of porcelain I combine this delicate medium with the intricate patterns of lace to produce a feminine range of homeware with a textile like surface. The range includes tealight holders, tea ware, vases, plates and bowls. The clay is rolled into thin sheets to allow the delicacy of the lace print natural translucency of the porcelain to shine through. Additions to the range include framed pieces, spoons, trinket dishes and a collection of jewellery all inspired by a love of curiosities and collections. I enjoy the individuality of the hand building process, allowing a piece to take its form based on the movement of the clay and lace print. The porcelain is glazed using a pastel colour palette with details picked out in lustre
