Amy makes translucent porcelain lighting from her home studio by the sea with her westie, Dexter, at her feet. As well as being beautifully white and pure porcelain is translucent so the light shines through it when it is very thin. Amy works with this special property of porcelain to make tiles and lights in very thin clay such that when it is fired the ceramic becomes translucent in the light. Studio visits by appointment.
I work with different types of clay ranging from porcelain, to clays with course textures. I favour hand building with a preference for slabwork. I make up my own slips and glazes and employ different surface techniques depending on the type of clay used in the construction of the piece.
I am a potter and work from my garden studio on Shoreham Beach. Locally I’m known as Beach Pottery. I love working with all types of clay, earthenware, stoneware and porcelain. I make functional objects, pottery that can be used every day. Currently I’m making plates, bowls, mugs and dishes but I’m also making porcelain candle holders.
