Jewellery & Leaf Table WareCeramics Inspired By Nature My Degree is in Ceramics and since qualifying back in 1995 I continue to create using clay as my primary medium alongside my healing business. I love the tactile nature of this malleable material; the fact that you can mould it into any form, and then fire it in a kiln, and it turns into hard durable ceramics! This still amazes me each time I open my kiln! My love of nature has combined with this love of clay to produce a number of unique ceramic collections. I make ceramic jewellery using the impression of real leaves, often collected from local arboretums and I have recently extended this range to include serving leaf platters and dishes. I also make vases inspired by the nature I see on my travels to far away places, most recently the desert cactus in Arizona. My ceramic art is my own therapy, ‘it washes away from my Soul the dust of every day life’ as quoted by Pablo Picasso…and allows me to be totally present, a type of mediation practise if you like.
