About Me

ABOUT

Inspired by the natural landscape.

Particularly the extraordinary and ever-changing world of the wetlands.

Each of my vessels tells the story of nature.

Organic in shape. Quiet in manner.

They evoke the beauty and complexity of our fragile ecosystem.

I have a fascination with our ever-changing environment and a deep passion to create.
