Being a maker of clay objects is very rewarding. It is a romantic and well-respected way to make a living. It is challenging and the possibilities are endless. I spend my days in my off the grid home studio at Mothar Mountain creating functional pots for my Spun Mud market stall. I love that the pots are artful and practical…they can transform our connection with food and create rituals. I have always sculpted, and my work still compliments my wheel thrown practice. Creating whimsical, figurative characters to record moments in time.
I have worked, studied and exhibited with a vivid array of ceramic artists since 1995, starting as a decorator in a large production pottery business in Brisbane. This lead me to Southbank TAFE, the golden years of Amfora Studio Collective Paddington, outsider art at Monte Lupo Studio, wood firing Pallara and Quixotica, then to my own studio, and a stall at Eumundi Markets and larger Designer markets at Goma and Finders Keepers.
