Nostalgic impressions……….

The pieces I create are tactile and capture the life, structure and form of the plant at that particular point in its life span. Each piece I create is individual in its composition, shape and size. I try to capture scenes from nature whether it’s from the bareness of winter and its beautiful skeletal structures, or the fullness of the summer bloom.
I create the pieces by hand and use cranks and grogged stoneware clay. The firing’s really enhance the body of the clay creating an overall rustic effect that doesn’t distract from the botanical compositions which are enhanced by oxides. The pieces are glazed on the inside.
It’s important that we celebrate and promote the importance of wildflowers that are diminishing in our British countryside and cities. Wild flowers support pollinators such and butterflies and bees and support insect eating birds.

I realise that my interests and relationships with nature come from memories of nostalgia, childhood and my experiences of collecting objects. By exploring natural objects and environments this nurtures my hunger to fulfill my creative obsessions.

Really lovely, bought originally for Xmas but keeping on display all year round!

This is the 3rd scarf I have purchased from this artist. I really love them because they are nice and lightweight and sit around the neck so comfortably. The colours are also stunning and very true to the pictures.

The lamb was a lot larger than I had expected and I absolutely love it - the detail and craftsmanship are superb. I would definitely buy from this seller again.

Love the design of the earrings and went on to purchase a bracelet. Only disappointment was the original packaging which I didn’t feel was the same quality as the product inside but the artist rectified this on my 2nd purchase and it was much improved.

Bought these in the gold. Loved the simple understated design which can be so easily dressed up or down. Very modern classic to suit any age. Good to see such young & talented artists. SAG.1/2/2021

Absolutely love Mrs Toad, the workmanship and skill of John is outstanding. It’s so lifelike I keep expecting it to come to life . The postage and packaging were fast and reliable. Just a little bit of saving now as I believe Mr Toad will have to join us .
