Handmade Australian Pottery

For the life you create

Australian pottery — provincial at heart

My life as a Potter started with lessons at my local art centre.

 

Inspired by my slow, coastal life, my collections encourage you to notice the beauty of everyday moments.

 

My partner and I live on a property nestled next to West Cape Howe National park. Over the last 13 years, we have created a mindful, considered life. Combining the luxurious simplicity of provincial living with a coastal Australian lifestyle, we've grown our own sanctuary.

I make functional pottery collections to help you celebrate the beauty of every day. Handmade, unique, and made for everyday use, they're the perfect antidote to mass-produced homewares.

A handmade mug elevates your morning. A stunning tablescape brings the family together. Create your own special moments with my dishwasher and microwave safe pottery collections.

HANDCRAFTED QUALITY

I handcraft each piece from premium stoneware or porcelain clay. My knowledge of materials, firing, and glazing means dishes, drinkware, and tableware are guaranteed food safe.

When I mix my own glazes from raw ingredients, I have control of what's inside. And hand glazing allows for the slight variations that make each piece unique.

From my home to yours

I've always had an eye for design. My studies gave me access to the foundations of design theory and they've become seeds that I've sown over the course of my life and career. 

As a florist and horticulturist, I'm fascinated by the shape, texture, and cyclical nature of productive plants. Many of my pieces are embellished by flora from my own garden. From hardy Australian natives to delicate bee-attracting blooms, I love anything that grows.

The wild ruggedness of WA's South Coast, the cool light of dawn, and a serene country coastal life informs all my work. When I wrap your bespoke pieces, I imagine packaging up that peace and tranquilty, as well.

Wherever you've created your sanctuary, I hope my work helps you to make memorable moments each day.

DOUBLE FIRED FOR STRENGTH

Stoneware clay pieces are double fired. Bisque firing at 1000°C makes a piece strong enough to be handled, sanded, and glazed.

 

And glaze firing at 1260°C ensures that each piece is fully vitrified. 

This means each piece is impermeable to liquid and made to last a lifetime.
