Why should you want to work with me?

This was the poster displayed at the networking lunch, Immersion arranged with guest speakers from the 'industry'. Everyone the on the course had to prepare a poster and answer the question 'Why should you want to work with me..?'
It was actually pretty hard, but using the skills we had learnt over the course of the.. well course, I was able to put things into perspective and realise that I do actually have quite alot to offer...

Sneak Peek...

Here's a little sneak preview of what you can expect to see from me in 2010 as well as my large cylinder vessels (the next collection is based on children growing up too quickly!)

A range of brooches/jewellery called 'What's up Dollface?'

"Unique handmade ceramic brooches decorated with precious metal lustres and secret recipe glazes"

A range of brooches - 'All washed up!'

"Unique brooches made from broken pottery washed up on the shores of Beaumaris, Anglesey Wales"

These were inspired by a visit with my friend Cait to her grandmother's in Anglesey. We were on the beach and we kept finding pieces of broken pottery - good stuff as well. Some even had 'Wedgewood' written on the back - well 'Wedg' anyway! The pieces of pottery had obviously been dumped in the sea and some point (possibly at Liverpool?) and made its way down to the shore of Wales. Each one is totally unique!

I suppose you could call them a 'diffusion range' as they still tell as story and hold a memory and that's whats important to me!

The mug was a christmas present I made for my Dad based on the chewing gum floors larger vessels.

I'm also in talks with an internet based vintage clothing store - Vincent West Vintage to produce some merchandise and marketing for them.

So watch this space!


So here it is. The photograph by Jamie Antonio Leme Jr.

Was quite fun being directed and told what to do, albeit a bit embarrassing seeing as we were sat outside Central Saint Martins, on a busy London street at lunch time - we got a few funny looks - especially us lot on the ground!

Unfortunately it started to rain, but I still feel its a good photo! Ha! maybe I would say that seeing as I'm bang up the front!?...
