My illustrations are a vital part of my design process. My pottery often uses the motifs and imagery I have already drawn and made water colour studies of in my sketchbook. I work on these a few times a week in-between studio time. It helps me to distil my ideas down into a cohesive collection and plan out forms or drawn motifs before I come to work with the clay. It’s a really important part of my process and hopefully this gallery gives an insight to my ceramic work.
