Bloom, 2023

17 × 15 × 30 cm
Ceramics came into my life at a time when I really needed it. It gave me mindfulness and gratitude where I couldn’t always find it This piece is called Bloom because as with a vase of fresh cut flowers that bring joy into your home, the process of handcrafting this vase brought me happiness. It represents a journey of “blooming” after languishing and seeing the beauty in every day.

“I started working with clay as a creative outlet. I’d been studying and raising two beautiful boys and when I graduated, I realised that I needed something that I could have as my own. Ceramics helped me create that balance that I’d been craving and integrate my passion for sustainability through art that can last a lifetime.”
