This little handmade box with a distressed chalky white finish, has little ceramic conference pears permanently fixed in place. Each clay pear has been handmade, ‘pinched’ into the form, with coloured slips and glazes applied in a painterly manner. The box has a hanging attachment on the back for wall display

This delightful little box of miniature Conference Pears is part of my ‘Pantry Collection’, inspired by the concept of a pantry, a chilly room where food and produce were kept before the days of a refrigerator. These colourful pears are all ready waiting for a tasty treat! However these little pears will always be fresh and tasty and never go mouldy! Ideal present for a pear lover!

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.
