'Garden Doves'


'Concordia - Raku'

An array of individually designed and decorated ceramic birds to brighten up the home or garden.
Our fascination with birds spreads across cultures and ages. My designs are loosely inspired by Scandinavian folk birds, and retro geometric bird illustrations of the 1950s and 60s. Each one-off design is decorated using a freehand method, ensuring every piece is unique.
I am drawn to curves - exploring these in a more pared down way in my 3D work. The Raku glazes are the result of an ancient Japanese firing method - red hot work is placed into a bin of sawdust producing a beautiful crackle effect.
