Dates: b. 1978

She completed a BA (Hons) in Ceramics at the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff and now works in the Fireworks Studios in Cardiff. Her work joins the precious and collectable with the ordinary and familiar. Tea pots and tea services are instantly recognisable objects which were originally intended for use but by being collected acquire status. Floral transfers, metallic lustres and items such as tap handles, used out of context, remove her wares from the functional to the collectable intended primarily for witty pieces of domestic decoration.
