A specific decoration for your ceramic items

My pots are influenced by my travels over 20 years having lived in various countries such as Egypt and Morocco, hence the tagines.

I work in stoneware clay which is fired in a gas kiln to a temperature of 1260 °C. It is very dense and resistant, making it suilable for oven to tableware with a long lifespan.

I make my own slips and glazes trying to improve the quality and expand my colour range.

Each piece is unique made individually by hand.

You’ll find my pots in different markets
