This Fruit Market Box of Pomegranates is inspired by my love for colourful produce in local markets, especially on my travels, in this case these were spotted like this in Morocco. Each fruit is made by hand, not a mould, so each are different. I use many different coloured glazes, all made by me, and apply the glaze in a painterly manner, just like I would use paint on a canvas. I depend on ‘my minds eye’ when glazing and the glaze looks a very different colour to what it will look like after firing to 1060 deg C.
The wood box frame is handmade for me by a lovely gentleman in my village and I stain the wood and use lime wax so it has a distressed ‘aged’ effect, giving it the authenticity of market boxes from many years ago – before plastic!
All my market boxes are the same size 28x35x6cms so my customers can collect a range of fish, fruit and vegetable boxes and they will display nicely together. Just like a market stall!

To remove dust gently wipe over with soft damp cloth, but due to the tops of the pomegranates being fragile, I spray or splash over with water and let it drip off immediately
The pomegranate originated in the region extending from Iran to northern India and has been cultivated since ancient times throughout the Mediterranean region. I love using pomegranates in my cooking especially with chicken, as well as tasty fruit salads and topping a cheesecake!

Local fresh fruit, vegetable and fish markets, both here and abroad, are the inspiration behind my ceramics. I’m excited by the colours, shapes and textures of local harvests. The vibrant displays, the neat piles of produce and the boxes of goods arranged in rows create a wonderful contrast to the busy bustle and chatter of market-goers.
The artworks I’m displaying for this event are the photographic images of my ceramic pieces which have been expertly, digitally printed onto handmade reclaimed wood panels. The printing process penetrates the indentations of the wood grain, so the finished product has its own unique characteristics, exposing textures that add to the character of the piece. After printing, I hand embellish each print and apply a matt varnish for protection making these artworks ideal for kitchen or eating areas. Each image is available in 4 sizes and will have a signed, “edition of 30” number, on the reverse.
I am delighted that my work has found homes around the Mediterranean and beyond, where they reflect the markets that inspired them! My wood panels have been chosen to be displayed in Michelin starred restaurants and a chain of gastro pubs across London.
As an artist, I haven’t always worked with clay. Having graduated from St Martin’s School of Art during the wonderfully creative and boundary-breaking era of the Seventies, I started out in the fashion & textiles industry. In 2007, my love of ceramics blossomed into the business I run today.
