Pottery and Ceramics

As well as using china, I love using handmade pottery in my work.  There are so many amazing colours/textures/patterns.  I am very lucky that a number of talented potters/ceramists/artists or mud bashers (as I've learned some of them like to be called!), have let me use their beautiful work in my mosaics.

I don't very often pre-plan a design.  I prefer to choose one or two things that inspire me, and then let me design develop around those pieces.  I love all the different styles, textures, colours and patterns that you find in handmade pottery and I really enjoy using the work of these lovely people as inspiration for what I make.

You will see examples of this work in my gallery, and here is more information about the artists so you can find out more about them and their work.
