"My work blends freehand patterns with sensual forms to achieve bold and playful vessels."
" I was born in the rocky back country of the Ardèche region in France and my craft was informed by its jagged contrasting landscapes."
"My love for textures, prints and colour brought me to Paris where I began a career in fashion developing collections for designers. I later completed an artisan degree and co-founded a ceramics studio."
"I moved to London in 2015 to find a vibrant community of inspiring makers and have recently moved into a wonderful little studio in Kentish Town."
"My inspirations come primarily from crafts like basketry, batik and ikat textiles inspired from trips to India, Mexico and Asia. I enjoy combining all these influences to create boldly patterned pieces seeking to find a space between functionality and sculpture."
