New for this year’s Devon Open Studio event in September. I’m presenting a series of origami ceramic bowls that are inspired by my coastal walks in South Devon.

I live near Broadsands Beach and I regularly walk along the seafront in quiet contemplation and in awe of the incredible scenes as they unfold before me. I’ve aimed to encapsulate how the rhythmic waves of the sea, birds in flight, and the sun-kissed beach intertwine in perfect harmony. My origami bowls are meticulously handcrafted and brought to life with a palette of captivating turquoise tones. The bowls’ textures are created with oxides, and add a touch of organic beauty, resembling the grains of sand that caress my feet as I stroll along the shore.
