About

I am a UK based ceramicist, illustrator and artist and studied at Central Saint Martins College of Art, London and have taught at art colleges across the UK. I produce hand-built and hand-thrown ceramics from my studio in Norwich.

My connection with ceramics began with my mother, the ceramicist Judith Onions, best known for her re-invention of the classic blue and white striped 'Cornishware' for TG Green & Co. My own ceramic work grows out of an interest in everyday and historic objects to tell their own stories. I love narrative and classic fiction and often use literature as a source for ideas. I enjoy looking at and working with museum collections and archives and I am especially interested in the idea of the ‘souvenir’ and creating loaded objects - hand-sized and intimate.

I have recently created a new collection of plates and tiles for The Shop Floor Project developed from the texts of classic fiction. Authors used include Emily Dickinson, Virginia Woolf, Mary Webb and Charlotte Bronte.
