Situated in the quiet countryside of the rolling hills of the Allier in France, my cosy little pottery is the perfect place for me to retreat to for reflection, inspiration and creativity.
I can often be found sitting at my old French school desk with the doors and windows wide open, dogs at my feet, listening to the sound of birds singing in the nearby woods.
Each piece is individual hand crafted, be it a pot, a bowl, a jug or a plaque, so no two pieces are ever exactly the same.
All my pottery is earthenware and each piece is made by me in my small workshop. It may be thrown on an electric wheel or hand modelled. I do not use moulds so each piece is individual and unique. It is then left until fully dry, which can take up to a week, before being smoothed with fine wire wool. After a little bit of tidying up it is given its first firing in the electric kiln to a temperature of 1050 degrees Celsius. It is then allowed to cool before being glazed. The glazes used can be in liquid or powder form and can be applied in various ways. The piece is then fired again to a temperature of 1050 degrees Celsius.
All the glazes I use are lead free and suitable for food use. All items are oven and dishwasher safe.
