Design Process

Concept to conclusion.

For me, working with porcelain clay is a tactile discovery. When developing a new idea I find the best method is to work instinctively, to allow the material itself to reveal its form.


I then develop a concept based on visual links and how these relate to the world around me. I continue to explore ideas and shapes within my sketchbook. I take a lot of pleasure intricately mapping out my designs considering aesthetics and wearability . It is often weeks before I have anything finalised due to the fact that each item is hand sculpted and  polished.  The porcelain is fired multiple times at temperatures in excess of 1200 degrees celsius to ensure purity and strength. It is then combined with precious metals and stones to achieve the final product.

Please visit my shop where you can buy from each of the collections below. Each piece in hand made and unique and is often a one-off, never to be recreated.


If my designs have inspired you, please get in touch to discus a one-off commission based on any of the themes.
