Growing up in Margaret River in the 80s, the enchantment I experienced around the river, forests, bushlands, and especially the deep blue sea, remains at my heart as a ceramicist with a penchant for whimsy.
The love of that naturescape and of magical fables and poems inspired the Owl and the Pussy Cat ceramics collection, an exploration of the child-like wonder that connects creatures with endearing human traits, personalities and accessories.
Imagine mugs and other functional ceramic wares uniting with gentlemanly whales wearing scarves and spectacles, little salty fishes at play, and other sea creatures that embrace the qualities of a child’s fun in roaming the water’s edge and swimming with other-worldly friends.
It was during my teen years in Fremantle with its coffee culture and European and maritime history, which continue to inspire me today, that a chance encounter with an Italian potter over coffee sparked my love of clay.
As a lover of stories and the romance of dreams coming true, I eventually left the big smoke to pursue my dream of becoming a ceramics artist in the south west of Australia.
I now live in Augusta where the two oceans meet, just half an hour from Margaret River, with a ceramics studio and café space overlooking Flinders Bay. Here at Two Seas Collective, my passions converge as I make coffee and cake in the morning and spend afternoons at my beloved clay work. Coffee, cake and ceramics go hand in hand!
Making small batch ceramics that are individually thrown and carved using a combination of wheel, hand building, sculpture and sgraffito techniques, I explore themes of childhood whimsy and marine life to evoke warmth, welcome and an emotional connection for guests.
The focus is on offering daily moments of beauty to locals and new friends that walk through the door, bringing people from all walks of life together for a common purpose… to enjoy the simplicity of connection.
The hope is to help make our lives one big piece of art, weaving the tapestry of people and our everyday pleasures to create unique moments.
