Baby Corn Pineapple 

An early piece based on a pineapple and ear of corn. The corn seeds are separate components and can be removed from the pineapple pockets. (Private Collection, London UK).

Bee on Bursting Blue Spray

A commission piece based on fluted flowers with stamens for a client's home in Nice, France. Soft calming glaze colours were used and there are happy smiling faces surrounding the base. The stamens are made from transparent blue acrylic so as to gather the light and the pollen on the end is made of silver glitter acrylic which is light and robust. (Private Collection, Nice France).

Beetle on Ice Cream Corn

This piece forms part of a collection made for a show in France based on Autumn fruits and vegetables. Hands reach out to grab the ice cream cones that grow out from the plant form. The hands reference the God with 1,000 hands. Indulgence of food is represented in a humorous way. (Private Collection).

Beetle on Peeping Pea Pod

This piece forms part of a collection for a gallery show in France based on Autumn vegetables and fruits. A beetle rests on the pod and there are different character heads serving as peas. Yellow legs wind off from the stalk. (Private Collection, London UK).

BBQ Brain 

An early smoke fired and burnished piece based on defining human intellect. (Private Collection).

Black Baby Cloud Bundle I

The 'Baby Cloud Bundles' were specially created for the British Ceramics Biennial 2016 shop. These are smaller versions of the sculptures shown in the FRESH section of the Biennial. Here, haphazard sprouting mesh shapes unite and conflict with voluminous cloud like forms, suggesting a dichotomous relationship of harmony and tension. This piece has been hand built from black and white stoneware clay and glazes have been developed to enhance the sensuous physicality of the sculpture. (Private Collection, Kent UK).

Black Baby Cloud Bundle II

This second Black Baby Cloud Bundle was made for a show with Puls Contemporary Ceramics Gallery in Brussels in March 2017 where it was sold. (Private Collection, Brussels Belgium).

Black Widow Smartie Sonic Hedgehog

This work is from the Puzzle Piece series. If assembled the pieces would form a hedgehog jigsaw that is named after the colourful computer game character. Smartie sweets adorn the surface and a spider with human body and teddy head clings to the back. The spider was inspired by Louise Bourgeois' 'Maman'. Black shoes reminiscent of MC Escher's drawing of staircases clamber over the piece and children's toy balls (one with a dummy top) with faces are scattered in areas. (Private Collection, Hellenic Institute of Holography).

Blood Crater

This was an experimental piece to work out how to generate the cloud/crater like forms. The undulations are perhaps too uniform and not random enough, though the glaze is a success. A layering of strong red glossy glaze on top of an orange base helps create a mottled rich surface that brings life to the work. It was high fired three times and the glaze was encouraged to run and drip. (Private Collection, Notting Hill London UK).

Blood Crystal in Midnight Element

This was exhibited at the Royal College of Art Degree show and the British Ceramics Biennial. A blood red crystal is encased within a cobalt blue grid-like mesh. The mesh acts as an affliction on the crystal and a method of protection. Studying the growth of crystal formations, bone and microscopic structures brought this piece into existence. It was hand built and high fired three times to attain the glossy mottled crystal surface and coarse bone effect which makes it feel alive and evokes awareness of transition and ephemerality. (Private Collection, Notting Hill London UK).

Butterfly on Cake Netsuke

Inspired by the Japanese Netsuke collection at the V & A, this piece was an attempt at making a tiny sculpture from high fired porcelain. It works well placed under glass domes. (Private Collection, London UK).

Candy Cap Magic Mushroom

This piece is from the collection made for a gallery show in France based on Autumn vegetables and fruits. A centipede walks around the shiny mushroom dome and faces surround the stalk. (Private Collection, London UK).

Chrome Cobalt Baby Cloud Bundle

The 'Baby Cloud Bundles' were created for the British Ceramics Biennial 2016 shop. They are smaller versions of the sculptures that were shown in the FRESH section of the show. Here, haphazard sprouting mesh shapes unite and conflict with voluminous cloud like forms, suggesting a dichotomous relationship of harmony and tension. This piece has been hand built and glazes have been developed to enhance the sensuous physicality of the sculpture. (Private Collection, Chevy Chase MD USA).

Cobalt Chrome Baby Cloud Bundle

The 'Baby Cloud Bundles' were created for the British Ceramics Biennial 2016 shop. They are smaller versions of the sculptures that were shown in the FRESH section of the show. Here, haphazard sprouting mesh shapes unite and conflict with voluminous cloud like forms, suggesting a dichotomous relationship of harmony and tension. This piece has been hand built and glazes have been developed to enhance the sensuous physicality of the sculpture. (Private Collection, Wellingborough Northants UK).

Concealed Cloud I

This piece was made in the summer of 2016 with an assistant who was a ceramics student studying at the Royal College of Art. It was sold at the Young Masters Maylis Grand Ceramics Prize shortlist exhibition, presented by the Cynthia Corbett Gallery at the Royal Over-Seas League in July 2017. (Private Collection).

Concealed Cloud III

This piece was made in the summer of 2016 with an assistant who was a ceramics student studying at the Royal College of Art. It was sold to Natalie Meyer Interior Design in June 2017. (Private Collection, Knightsbridge London UK).

Cosmic Egg

Sold at the Wyndham Grand Hotel, Chelsea Harbour, London, this piece is based on human and plant growth. A shiny lustre egg opens up in 3 places to reveal a triffid like flower with legs creeping out, and rabbit growing from the middle. (Private Collection, Surrey UK).

Crystal Amoeba

An early piece in the Cloud Bundles and Other Stories Collection, in fact the very first piece that led to this series. 'Crystal Amoeba' was made in 2014 and sold in 2017 to an Israeli ceramic student and her partner from a ceramics course at Heatherley's School of Art. (Private Collection, UK).

Crystalline Cloud I

This piece was made in order for the artist to explore ideas around contrast of soft and angular form. It represents transformative states of growth where the crystal-like structure is emerging out from the voluminous cloud. Rich strong colours have been used here to accentuate the angles and curves. It was shown at the Fitzrovia Gallery and was sold to a ceramics collector. (Private Collection, Barbican London UK).

Crystalline Cloud II

This piece is a second version of the crystalline cloud and was sold to a couple who visited the show at Adams + Collingwood Architects in 2016. (Private Collection, London UK).

Crystal Mutation

This piece is from the Crystal Formation series. The study of crystal growth and microscopic organisms supported the development of this work. Crystal shapes are precariously balanced between the hollow grid/mesh like structure, presenting a haphazard relationship between these two elements. The ungraspable state of growth is fixed and the tension generated expresses an awareness of the passing states of human emotions and life’s impermanence.

Cypress Morphon

This is without doubt, one of the most structurally complex pieces the artist has made. It was lucky to survive the firings as it has no solid base to rest on and had to be fired on handmade clay props. Cypress Morphon was made during the final year of the artist's time at the Royal College of Art and sold soon after the degree show. The title is adapted from the name of a seed as the seed structure inspired the piece. (Private Collection, Teddington UK).

Dottie Boots

A self portrait of the artist, this piece takes the form of a sprouting seed pod glazed using dramatic colours. A human emerges with multiple hands and feet. Teddy and pig faces are caught between the seeds. (Private Collection, Hong Kong).

Earwig on Sultan in Pear

This piece is from a collection made for a gallery show in France based on Autumn vegetables and fruits. A earwig makes its way around a lustrous pear, where the Sultan sits. A lilac hand emerges from the stalk. (Private Collection, London UK).

Edamame Gigandes

This piece was made in the summer of 2016 in Somerset. It is based on studies of a bent bean found on the allotment. It was taken to the studio in London to fire and glaze and was glazed many times to achieve the layered textural surface. It sold to a ceramics student from Heatherley's School of Art in the summer of 2017. (Private Collection).

Erupting Earth Cloud Cluster

Erupting Earth Cloud Cluster was sold with Puls Contemporary Ceramics Gallery in March 2017. It was the gallery owner's favourite work in the show, admired for the oozing nature of the red glazed mesh erupting out of the blue green cloud cluster. It was purchased by a ceramic collector to sit alongside his Aneta Regel piece. (Private Collection, Brussels Belgium).

ET Phone Home

The title of this piece references Stephen Spielberg's film. In the film ET, an alien tries to communicate with his own family via telephone. ET faces and telephones grow throughout the piece, forming part of a larger organic form. The phones suggest that through communication via technology, there is a lack of physical intimacy. Shiva, the Hindu Goddess of destruction and regeneration rises at the top with a flower bud head. (Private Collection).

Fishy Ducky Bunny Trees

Coloured clays were used in the making of this piece as glazing the tree branches different colours would be an impossible task. Fish, ducks and rabbits float amongst the hands and feet branches. Faces surround the trunks and are submerged in the roots. This is reminiscent of illustrations from fairytales and the Buddha head in tree roots at Wat Phra Mahathat in Thailand. (Private Collection, London UK).

Fookie Fookie

This piece was bought by a collector of erotic art. It is concerned with the transition from childhood to adulthood. There is a teddy headed, plant like human in the bed and pink sperms travel from the person, culminating in a spiral underneath. Hand made black roses cover the bed and boxing gloves serve as bed posts. This is the first time the artist used black glaze in her work. (Private Collection, London UK).

Gladstone Bouquet

The construction of the flowers in this work allude to the bone china flower making from the Gladstone pottery in Stoke-on-Trent. Wires with plastic balls like giant stamens protrude out from the piece creating movement and dynamism. The ceramic balls incorporated within the piece have mother of pearl lustre on them to provide shimmer. (Private Collection, London UK).

Glistening Branch

This piece was made at Studio Manifold in 2016 and sold to Natalie Meyer Interior Design in the summer of 2017. (Private Collection Knightsbridge London UK).

Great Little Britain

Two versions of this piece were made to coincide with the Olympic Games in 2012. The sculptures capture a still moment in time of the athletes. They celebrate the power of individuals and how strength can be multiplied when individuals work in a team towards goodness. The pieces serve as a trophy of Great Britain. (Private Collections, Hampstead and Mile End, London UK).

Gresham

This was a commission piece to celebrate Gresham private equity company. It takes on a classical form where three tapering arms join together to encase a central flower with scroll like leaves. A tiny beetle walks along the purple glazed surface and the three glaze colours selected reflect the company colours. (Gresham Private Equity, London UK).

Growth and Decay

An early piece based on a seed head, using grogged clay and no glaze. (Private Collection).

Happy New Year 

A collage sold at Gallery 286 in Earls Court, London 2013. The piece depicts an amorphous woman in heart handcuffs with fingers on fire lit by matches wearing Santa Claus hats. She rides a white unicorn rocking horse. The text below hints at how activities can be used to fill voids. A family of rubber ducks sit on the rocking base and a frog waits patiently to be kissed so he can turn into a prince. (Private Collection, Folkestone UK).

Heal the World

The title makes reference to a famous Michael Jackson song and the collage represents the excess of society and the opposite extremes in third world countries. Gold hands reach out and collaged fruit tumble out of cornucopias. (Private Collection, London UK).

Heli Cacti

Heli Cacti sold to a German ceramic collector to sit alongside work by German ceramic artist Beate Kuhn. The collector saw an article in The New Ceramics Magazine and made contact. 'Verdigris Crystal Element' was purchased at the same time. (Private Collection, Germany).

Higher Power Plant

This work explores the relationship between humanity and the natural world, with evolution as the ultimate concern. All life is transient and impermanent. The role of the artist is to capture a fleeting moment in time and present this to the world, so as to encourage debate in the here and now. It is this questioning that gives meaning and pleasure to human existence. This still life plant form typically demonstrates this purpose. This plant form was inspired by the giant Lobelia Deckenii seen on Mt Kilimanjaro where the leaf structure starts falling downwards having been growing upwards. The piece is painted with a white engobe to allow the natural light to cast shadows off the sculpture. (Private Collection, Earls Court London UK).

Innocent Wrigley Life Savers (Siblings)

These form part of a family of five, where all siblings have been sold to different homes leaving only the parents remaining. The wriggly nature of tentacles fascinates the artist as this mimics human fears where all is inconsistent and irrational. The boxing gloves provide protection and defence against fears. The piece has been referred to as 'Squiddly Diddly', an animated squid from the 1960's. (Private Collection, London, Surrey UK and Barcelona Spain).

Inside Out

This piece was developed at the Royal College of Art in the artist’s first year. It was made in response to the title ‘In Support of Eating’ and is intended for use as a sculptural fruit bowl. It sold at a show at Preston Fitzgerald's home. Box corners from disposable food packaging were cut up, cast and assembled to produce a series of three works following this concept. (Private Collection, London UK).

King Dummie Steering, All Fearing Workin' Wizza

This piece represents the hard working business man where juggling of many balls is necessary to survive. Hence the ball like arms seen here which mimic robots arms and can whizz around all different angles. The boxing gloves show the fortitude of the the man and the dummy suggests his need to provide offspring and establish a future generation. He has hearts on his face and polka dot legs with frogs sprouting from his feet. A gorilla emerges from his underside with a man in a suit. (Private Collection, Surrey UK).

Ladder to Cloud Brexit Island

This piece was made in July 2016 before Bexit took place. It sold at Adam Partridge Auctioneers during the Studio Ceramics and Modern Design Sale on Friday 14th Oct 2016 along with Pollinating Creature III and I.

Ladder to Cloud Meteoroid

This sculpture was sold the day after it was exhibited at the Royal College of Art degree show. A sensuous bright yellow cloud-like meteorite perches on top of a ladder made from unglazed high fired black clay. There is a conflicting balance between the expanding cloud and the revealing of the empty space underneath it, inside the hollow mesh structure. There is a curious relationship between the two as the shapes are in harmony and yet feel in discordance with one another. (Private Collection, Lewisham London UK).

Ladder to New Arrival

This small ceramic maquette focuses on form, structure and colour. Eruptive and crawling glazes have been used on these two separate parts which slot into one another. It was first exhibited at Organism with the Espacio Gallery in Bethnal Green, to coincide with the Chelsea Fringe event in 2016. (Private Collection, Teddington UK).

3 Lollipop and 3 Mint Baby Cloud Bundles

The 'Baby Cloud Bundles' were originally created for the British Ceramics Biennial 2015 shop. These are smaller versions of the sculptures that were on show in the FRESH section of the Biennial. Here, haphazard sprouting mesh shapes unite and conflict with voluminous cloud-like forms, suggesting a dichotomous relationship of harmony and tension. Pieces are handbuilt and glazes have been developed to enhance the sensuous physicality of the work. (Lollipop and Mint Baby Cloud Bundles sold in 2016, Private Collection, Notting Hill London UK). (Mint Baby Cloud Bundle sold in 2016, Private Collection, Norway Oslo). (Lollipop and Mint Baby Cloud Bundles, Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale Collection 2017). (Lollipop Baby Cloud Bundle sold at The Young Masters Maylis Grand Ceramics Prize shortlist exhibition with the Cynthia Corbett Gallery 2017, Private Collection, Gloucester Road London UK).

Melon Berry Burst

A fruity piece exploring growth and transformation. A berry of faces bursts out from the centre and rabbits and human legs are either being sucked in by plants or sprouting out from them, or perhaps both. Green watermelons flow out from the centre with cheeky faces. (Private collection, London UK).

Millepede on Mini Egg Plant

This piece takes on the form of an eggplant with iridescent lustre fired on top of the shiny aubergine coloured glaze. A dark green clown's boot kicks at the stalk and a red hen pops out mini eggs from within the vegetable. (Private Collection, USA).

Miss Sunshine Delight and Mr Macho Moonlight Love Balls

This loved up couple present caricatures of true love and joy. A moth rests on the male and butterfly on the female. Mr Macho Moonlight has stars on his cartoon shaped body and wears a top hat whilst carrying a torch which stands for guidance and freedom. Miss Sunshine Delight (whose name derives from a consumer drink) has flowers on her body and her hair pigtails whilst she carries a flower basket carefree. (Private Collection).

Moon Crater

This was an experimental piece to work out how to create the cloud/crater like forms, typical of the artist’s work. This is an evocative piece bringing to mind craters on the moon. It was labelled ‘Lacy Knickers’ by the artist’s tutor at the Royal College of Art, due to its sensuality and colour. A volcanic glaze was used to enhance the lumps and bumps of the cloud form and it was fired twice to produce the dense holes that one can see into. (Private Collection, Cambridge UK).

Moonlight Sunshine Baby Cloud Bundle

This piece was made just before the show 'Cracked', curated by Courtenay Moon at 50 Golborne Road, London. It sold to a trustee of the Crafts Council at 'Cracked'. The piece forms part of the 'Baby Cloud Bundles' series and is glazed in a purple silky matt and dry eruptive bright yellow glaze which reflects the artist's interest in night (purple) and day (yellow) and the ever changing environment. (Private Collection, London UK).

Mystique

This sculptural bowl was developed at the Royal College of Art in the artist’s first year. It was made in response to the title ‘In Support of Eating’ and is intended for fruit. Box corners from disposable food packaging were cut up, cast and assembled to produce a series of three works following this concept. Sold with Fiona Barratt-Campbell Interiors. (Private Collection).

New Arrivals

These two sculptures are small in size compared to the work the artist typically makes. They were made for the Orton Cone Box Show 2016 but were not shown and instead sold with Pamono, a one-of-a-kind market place specialising in design objects and the stories behind them. Inspired by microscopic forms such as pollen seeds, the attention to shape and surface was important in order to create an atmosphere of strange alternative life forms with these miniature sculptures. (Private Collection, Wellingborough Northants UK).

Octopussy Galore

This is the largest octopus made by the artist. It's name derives from an Bond movie because it has pussy cats surrounding the base in between each tentacle. It possesses many heads and was one of the earlier pieces from when the artist first started incorporating toys within her work. (Private Collection, London UK).

Passion Berry (front piece)

A small early model exploring growth within a berry and decay of the skin of a passion fruit. (Private Collection UK).

Pink Lady

This piece depicts a Pink Lady apple with pink ladies body at the core. The artists typical two heads comes into play well here where both teddy and pig head grow out from the stalk. The base comprises of daisy's and an orange snake slithers around the piece, rather like the snake tempting Eve in the biblical story. (Private Collection, Leytonstone London UK).

Pollinating Creature I

This piece is part of a series of Pollinating Creatures which have smaller components which sit inside the main part. It sold at Adam Partridge Auctioneers during the Studio Ceramics and Modern design Sale on Friday 14th October 2016 along with 'Ladder to Brexit Cloud Island' and 'Pollinating Creature III'.

Pollinating Creature III

This piece is part of a series of Pollinating Creatures which have smaller components which sit inside the main part. It sold at Adam Partridge Auctioneers during the Studio Ceramics and Modern design Sale on Friday 14th October 2016 along with 'Ladder to Brexit Cloud Island' and 'Pollinating Creature I'.

Pow

An early piece from when the artist first started using moulds in her work and experimenting with coloured clays. Pow refers to the expression from Batman and Robin where they would punch the enemy. Here, Pow has boxing gloves and is punching the air ready to defend against all that comes it's way. The arms and legs are decorated with diamonds and polka dots suggesting the clown like tendencies of the piece. (Private Collection, London UK).

Pussycat Dolls

Pussycat dolls, a reference to the girl pop band, concerns identity, female sexuality and relationships. There are 3 main characters; a black cat and mother giving birth to her baby. A butterfly with human hand abdomen holds up a halo over the cat, transforming it into an icon. Daisy flowers adorn the piece representing innocence and the transience of life where plants grow and decay amidst struggles to survive. The mother figure has one animated arm and another with triffids. Red roses or intestine forms surround the body, hinting at sexual reproduction. The cat's long neck was inspired by Japanese Geisha and Modigliani’s paintings. Black symbolises independence, red suggests sexuality and death, whilst the white halo and daisy's represent purity. (Private Collection, London UK).

Red Baby Cloud Bundle

Red Baby Cloud Bundle sold at Puls Contemporary Ceramics Gallery in Brussels in March 2017 where it was displayed next to it's pair, Black Baby Cloud Bundle II. (Private Collection, London UK).

Red Hot Creature

This piece was made at Studio Manifold & was the first piece to be glazed at the artist's' new studio at Cockpit Arts. It came out brighter than expected, which makes the work seem even more dynamic. It was exhibited at Cracked, a show in London curated by Courtenay Moon, before being shown at Tresor Contemporary Craft with Gallery Puls in Basel Switzerland, where it sold at the private view to a Swiss collector. (Private Collection, Switzerland).

Residing Cloud

Sold at the Royal College of Art degree show, this piece was arguably the artist’s most accomplished sculpture at the time and was the last work she made during her Royal College experience. From half a voluminous, volcanic glazed lilac cloud, emerges a yellow matt glazed mesh which attempts to take over the cloud. This is part of a series of Cloud Bundles where expressive and ambiguous pieces exploring the idea of growth are meticulously hand built and glazed in specially developed glazes that enhance the personality of the work. (Private Collection, London UK).

Rockin' Rabbit

This piece is a maquette and was one of the first made before 'The Strange Dreams And Mother Nature' series came about around 2005. It was sold to a ceramics collector along with 'Cosmic Egg' and rebought by another collector when the original purchaser died and her collection was sold on. (Private Collection, Belgium Brussels).

Safe Hands Mugs

This popular series of double handled mugs were developed at the Royal College of Art in the artist’s first year. They were inspired by porcelain salt glazed Staffordshire house teapots made around 1750 and were designed to be used with this teapot. The mugs act as people who would have lived in the house and they remind one of the connection containers have with the body, where both are regarded as life forces. The mugs are slip-cast in porcelain and have domestic embossed wallpaper and bandaged surfaces which mimic Egyptian Mummies. Keys have been modelled onto each mug character to help visually imagine the unlocking of the teapot house. Gold lustre has been applied to the key and inside.

Sea Mint Baby Cloud Bundles I and II

The 'Baby Cloud Bundles' were originally created for the British Ceramics Biennial 2015 shop. These are smaller versions of the cloud-like sculptures. Haphazard sprouting mesh shapes unite and conflict with voluminous forms, suggesting a dichotomous relationship of harmony and tension. Pieces are handbuilt and glazes have been developed to enhance the sensuous physicality of the work. This duo sold at 'Bryanston Today' at the Mall Galleries in Nov 2016. (Private Collection, UK).

Sea Mint Baby Cloud Bundle III

The 'Baby Cloud Bundles' were originally created for the British Ceramics Biennial 2015 shop. These are smaller versions of the cloud-like sculptures. Haphazard sprouting mesh shapes unite and conflict with voluminous forms, suggesting a dichotomous relationship of harmony and tension. Pieces are handbuilt and glazes have been developed to enhance the sensuous physicality of the work. This piece sold at Puls Contemporary Ceramics in March 2017 to a London based collector who works for the Crafts Council. (Private Collection, UK).

Sex Pot

‘Jugs’ is a slang word used today to describe women’s breasts as both carry milk. ‘Sex Pot’ is a witty pouring object deliberately depicting a woman’s breast with a hole in the nipple to pour liquid through. This piece was made in response to ‘Skangaroovian Funk Revisited’, a show at The Art Gallery of South Australia in 2013. The exhibition documented pottery from the Skangaroovian Funk movement which took place in Adelaide in the late 1960s and 1970s where Pop art sensibility was juxtaposed with the history of decorative ceramic art. Tessa felt the need to create something whimsical so as to break away from life’s routine and place herself off kilter. All ceramic pouring objects have personalities, be it serious or humorous and this is determined by the human act of pouring. The generosity of internal space, where the void is celebrated as a giver of life along with the possessing of human-like qualities such as a lip, arm and belly help determine the character of the pouring object. True to the ceramics movement in Adelaide, Tessa did not set out to make this pouring object classically beautiful, well-balanced and light weighted as a successful jug should be. She would describe it as being well-made and crude. It has been hand-built and press moulded. It is glazed in bright glossy earthenware colours with a small amount of 22 carat gold lustre to enhance the entertaining nature of the work. The piece was exhibited at 'Pour Me' at The Devon Guild of Craftsmen in 2017 where it was sold. (Private Collection, UK).

Shark Attack with Verruca Vulgaris

A sentiment of enquiry surrounds this piece, depicting an orange aged barnacle poised on an electric blue starfish-like creature with turquoise spikes. The often overlooked detail of microscopic structures has been observed in order to create this piece which forms a part of the Creature series. The strange animated quality transports the observer away from reality and summons reflection upon authenticity and impermanence. There is a conflict and alliance formed between the two forms which the artist’s parallels with human emotions. The multiple fired earthenware matt, crusty and glossy glazes enhance the dialogue and unique persona surrounding this work. (Private Collection, Notting Hill London UK).

Snail on Tweeties in Autumn Crocus

This piece is from a collection made specially for a gallery show in France based on Autumn vegetables and fruits. A snail sits on the side of the crocus flower whose petals are made up of mobile phones. Tweetie birds hold up the bud and yellow stamen legs protrude out from between the petals. (Private Collection, London UK).

Snow Cloud

Snow Cloud is the first of a series of Ball Clouds and was shown at Puls Contemporary Ceramics Gallery where it sold in March 2017. (Private Collection Brussels Belgium).

Spider on Funky Punky Conker

This piece is from a collection made specially for a gallery show in France based on Autumn vegetables and fruits. A spider rests half way between the conker's face and its shell. A hand comes out from the end of the stalk and the piece rests on its spikes. (Private Collection, London UK).

Spikey and Blobby Subservient Creatures

These pieces are inspired by the photography of Rob Kesseler where there is a pleasure to be found in plant life magnified. Each spike and blob has been carefully modelled and treated as if it was an individual sculpture. The shape of a blob/spike was important in determining what shaped blob/spike to put next to it. These works have been fired many times to build up richness of glaze surface. The curious ambiguous nature of these sculptures is something the artist feels proud of. (Private Collection, Putney London UK).

Spikey Subservient Creature Commission

This piece is inspired by the photography of Rob Kesseler where there is a pleasure to be found in plant life magnified. Each spike has been carefully modelled and treated as if it was an individual sculpture. The shape of a spike was important in determining what shaped spike to put next to it. The piece has been fired many times to build up the richness of glaze surface. The curious ambiguous nature of this work is something the artist feels proud of. (Private Collection, Los Angeles USA).

Sprouting Limitless Cloud I

This piece was made at the Royal College of Art and exhibited at the degree show. It was shown in various exhibitions from June 2015 to September 2016. Sold with Fiona Barratt-Campbell Interiors. (Private Collection, Russia).

Sprouting Limitless Cloud II

This piece was made at Studio Manifold and sold along with the 'Sea Mint Baby Cloud Bundles' at 'Bryanston Today', Mall Galleries in Nov 2016. (Private Collection, UK).

Sprouting Limitless Cloud III

This piece was made at Studio Manifold for Collect 2017 with Fiona Barratt-Campbell Interiors. It was taken to Brussels soon after to be shown with Puls Contemporary Ceramics Gallery where it sold in March 2017. (Private Collection).

Steroid Smurfs

A humorous and macabre piece made using coloured clays to comment on the ingestion of steroids to create an ideal male body where nature is pushed in favour of artificial extremes. (Private Collection, Brussels Belgium).

Straw Sea Shore Berry

A piece inspired by the poem, 'The Man in The Wilderness' by Chris Stephens where strawberries grow in the sea. Each strawberry pip was made by hand and toy fishes were cast to serve as leaves with man in a top hat modelled as the stalk. A yellow crab rests on a fish leaf. This piece provides a perfect balance between surrealism and fairy-tales. (Private collection, London UK).

Sun Sea Sand Survivors

Based on merry go rounds and circus acts this tall piece depicts a horse supporting acrobatic clowns on its pole. The top transforms into a palm tree and a starfish rests at the base. (Private Collection, London UK).

Sunshine Cloud on Midnight Element

Pinch, soft, undulations, volume, irregular and asymmetrical were the words used to provoke ideas for hand building this sculpture. It was the first of the cloud and grid/mesh series made and the work aided the advancement of future work following this sequence. A dry yellow matt glaze with lithium crystals was used to bring sunshine to what could be perceived as a gloomy cloud. The configuration of the bright bulging cloud and vivid blue geometric grid supporting it produces an unsettling equilibrium between the opposing forms. (Private Collection, Notting Hill London UK).

Sweetie Anti Eater

This is a small piece from the puzzle pieces series. If assembled, it would form an at eater and sweets are decorated on the surface despite the fact ant eaters don't eat sweets, hence the title. High heel shoes clamber over the piece referencing MC Escher's drawings of staircases. Balls (with faces), another toy in addition to jigsaw puzzles, are intermittently scattered at intervals around the piece. Two joined children's torsos with pig and teddy heads are positioned on the back surface. (Private Collection).

Symbiosis

This small ceramic maquette focuses on form, structure and colour. Eruptive and crawling glazes have been used on these two seperate parts which slot into one another. It was first exhibited at Organisim with the Espacio Gallery in Bethnal Green, to coincide with the Chelsea Fringe event in 2016. (Private Collection, Teddington UK).

Teddie Noonie Nookie

The title of this work derives from Limp Bizkit's song, where the beat and confidence relate to the bold dynamic seen in this piece. Loud polka dots cover the legs and arms, and boxing gloves stand fiercely high above the main body. The body consists of characterful faces with a teddy bear with pink bow at the centre, from which flow baby and adult female torsos. (Private Collection Surrey UK).

Verdigris Crystal Element

This piece was bought in conjunction with 'Heli Cacti' by a German ceramics collector. They sit alongside German ceramic artist Beate Kuhn's work. The collector saw an article in The New Ceramics Magazine and made contact. (Private Collection, Germany).
