Many years working in busy hospital emergency departments lead my well intentioned brother to say, “Stress less sister!” Seeing some wisdom in that jibe, I decided to turn my interest in ceramics into a focused attempt to learn more about the underlying techniques and processes from some of Sydney’s best ceramists. That step has lead to a real passion for making pieces that balance the teachings with my interest in native Australian influences.
I have been a Clovelly local for the past 30 years and primarily use stoneware to make functional and durable pieces that match the environment in and around Sydney. I am constantly trying to refine the skills involved in the making process. Most importantly, I derive immense satisfaction from having someone appreciate a piece made just for them.
