of England reburialommissioned designer maker of porcelain ware used for King Richard Hello and welcome to my website.
I am the designer & maker of the porcelain ware used for the re-burial of King Richard 3 of England.
Recently commissioned to create the 3 porcelain lidded pots used to hold the soil blessed by the Archbishop of Canterbury within the casket for the re-burial of King Richard 3. The royal coffin as well as the casket was made by Michael Ibsen 17 descendant of King Richard.
As a British trained professional artist and potter I specialise in ceramics creating high quality, decorative porcelain giftware.
Each contemporary vessel, bowl and jewellery with their distinctive organic style, some of which are embellished with coloured volcanic glaze are all handmade by me in my Leicestershire studio.
Inspired by nature particularly seascapes, each piece is unique and has its own character. The beautiful lines and shapes of shells, water, barnacles and plants offer a unique story for me to interpret as an artist. The delicate translucent work which is as strong as glass reflects the strength and fragility of the human spirit.
I use photography to capture moments and revisit images for drawing. These photographs can be seen in 'inspirations' above. These images are then translated in porcelain clay by hand carving, hand polishing and the use of volcanic glazes.
