Pair of Poppy Candlesticks
Pair of hand painted poppy candlesticks. Hand built with a scalloped edge, the hand of the maker is apparent in their charming imperfections and subtle wobbles. Painted with slips, metal oxides and stains and finished with a luxurious, shiny transparent glaze.

Flora in an Old Garden
A new terracotta collection of celebratory hand-built platters, chargers and candlesticks which centre around the idea of the ‘Contemporary Heirloom’. Working with red terracotta clay decorated with slips (liquid clay) is a very old process steeped in history and folklore, which has an inherent warmth and earthiness. This collection explores my own interpretation of this traditional technique; I mix a palette of slips with both natural metal oxides and bright coloured stains which I apply in painterly, gestural floral patterns, swirling the slips together and highlighting the fluidity and richness of the material. These pieces are intended to fill a domestic interior with colour, pattern and flowers; bringing a sense of joy to the everyday
Care: Intended for decorative or occasional use. Do not place in a dishwasher. Wipe clean with a damp cloth.
