This hand embellished wood panel print is a high quality photographic image of one of my still life ceramic and wood sculptural artworks, inspired by colourful fresh fish waiting to be prepared for a tasty supper. This wood panel is handmade using reclaimed wood and then expertly digitally printed onto the surface, penetrating the indentations of the wood grain and textures. After printing I hand embellish using acrylic paint where necessary to enhance the colour or definition. Finally, a clear matt varnish is applied.
Due to the characteristics of the wood grain and texture, and subsequent hand embellishment, each panel will be unique and bring a colourful focal point to a room.
Each image is a limited edition of 15. On reverse of each wood panel is a wood certificate indicating its edition number and my signature.
This panel is printed in one size: 58x43x3cm. A bespoke size, in same proportion/larger, can be discussed for a particular interior requirement , please contact me to discuss.
58 × 3 × 43 cm

My ‘still life from the kitchen table’ wood panels are inspired by fresh fish , fruit and vegetables waiting to be prepared for supper. Salmontes, or Red Mullets, as they are known as here, are a popular fish in Spain and the Mediterranean. I see these fish in the well known Mercat Olivar indoor fish market, in Palma, Mallorca. They have the most beautiful pastel shades of pinks, yellows, scarlet reds and pale blues. I usually paint them in watercolours when I get back from the market before I cook them. Back in my studio in the UK, I use the paintings as reference to make them in clay and use many coloured glazes. Then they become one of my still life ceramic sculptural wall art presented in a distressed, lime waxed, wood box frame.
Perhaps you remember eating these colourful fish on a Mediterranean holiday or seeing them in the local fish market?

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.
