OPEN STUDIO- NATIONAL EVENT THROUGH AUSTRALIAN CERAMICS ASSOCIATION

Come and discover my place of inspiration in the Perth Hills; surrounded by native flora and fauna I am in my element.  My porcelain collection starts its humble beginning on the pottery wheel, where over time, mounds of clay evolve to become a canvas that tells my story. Each piece is one of a kind, made by hand, and intricately finished. I create unique Australian inspired Botanical Vases, decorated bottles and porcelain marbled homewares for everyday use.

My home studio has a workshop out the back and a display gallery space at the front. Come and join me for a cup of tea, some clay time, discover the journey of the work and see the finished pieces. Available for purchase on the day.

During the Open Studio you can also come and partake in making a large community coil pot or bowl. Free to partake, find some natural textures from the gardens to press into clay, add your own special touches and be a part of the story. The work will be glazed and fired and on display at the studio for your next visit! If you make your own nature bowl you may choose to take it home on the day, or I can fire and glaze it for a small fee to make it food safe and you can come back and pick it up ready to take home and use!

From my home to yours; from my hands to yours. Please enjoy and Rediscover Ceramics
