What female photographers do you admire?

Valerie Chiang, June Canedo, Dafi Hagai, and a little more close to home, Melbourne based photograhers, Sarah Pannell and Kate Molenkamp.

What is the last book that you read?

I much prefer comics and short stories over large novels. My last read was Simon Hanselmann’s “Amsterdam”, which is his latest anthology of his Megg, Mogg and Owl comics. They’re so funny but so incredibly bleak. To switch things up I’m now reading both Zadie Smith’s “Swing Time” and Albert Camus’ “The Plague”.

Tell us about what you do.

I run my own small pottery business. I make every piece by hand in my small little studio, which is right next to Little & Friday so I get coffee on tap.

When did you begin working with ceramics and how did that happen?

I had been doing part time art classes when my daughter was little. I did a sculpture course with Harriet Stockman, and I just wanted to make plates and functional tableware. Harriet wrote down on a scrap of paper all the materials I would need to get started and where to source everything. I set up a little table in my front room with a view of the sea and got to work, watched tonnes of tutorials on youtube and begged other local potters to let me borrow some space in their kilns.

What is it that you do?

I'm an Illustrator that dabbles in a bit of everything including ceramics and embroidery.

Describe your creative process:

I'm very inspired by my friends and a lot of them have their own labels and shops so I'll be asked to do something design based for them and then other works and ideas grow, I work best from suggestion!
