My passion for ceramics has been influenced by my previous experiences in studying mass-produced social housing in civil engineering and architecture in my native France.

I use techniques common in mass production to explore the relationship between user and object. To do this, I experiment with textures, finishes and materials that incorporate historical notions of value with a modern twist, such as lustre set against an earthly terracotta. Using a combination of clays, my ceramic work has a simple, clean aesthetic that evolves and changes through use over time.

The pieces are interactive and playful and as well functional and pleasing to the eye. These are not objects to place out of reach in cabinets, but to be used, touched and shared.
