Location plymouth, devon, United Kingdom
Introduction I work in clay- porcelain and stoneware. I make cups, bowls and teapots on a potters wheel. I explore varying type sof cups and mugsas there are so many different types. I also knit and crochet. I rearch the meaning of ceramics and the origins of tableware as there was a time when these objects did not exist. it is hard to imagine a world without cups and teapots. I am interested in the the origins of our everyday objects.
