About


Clay has been part of my life on and off in the past 20 years, but in the past few years it has become my main creative passion.

I believe that when our everyday objects are made by hand from natural resources it elevates our daily tasks to rituals.

I enjoy the meditative wheel throwing production as well as the peaceful hand- building process.

I make a wide range of tableware with the focus on an earthy appearance using a matt colour expression. The inside is usually plain clear glaze that provides a neutral background for food and drinks.

I use NZ Stoneware clay and I mix my own glazes from raw materials.

I live in Wellington, one of New Zealand's most creative hubs. 

Beside making pottery I also enjoy teaching and sharing my experience. I teach group classes at 'Wellington Potters Association' as well as private lessons at my studio.
