I was drawn to ceramics because of the tactile and immersive nature of it. It is both an art and a craft, it can add beauty to everyday objects. I like to use different making techniques and to experiment with different clays creating both functional and decorative pieces. I draw inspiration from nature and strive to create minimalist but pleasing forms. However, having only started two and a half years ago and I am still very much exploring my ceramic identity.
