Fire Formed was set up in 2020, at the height of the pandemic. Inspired by my time studying a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at Coventry University, I set up a pottery studio with the support of my friend Alexia. Since then, I have dedicated my time to developing my Creative Practice. I am continuing to live my dream of running a small scale, local pottery in Birmingham. All my work is handmade, unique and crafted with love.
I enjoy time on the wheel, throwing pots that are comfy to hold and beautiful to look at. I likes things that go together but don't match, and that can be used regularly and not kept for best. I associate pieces I own with people I love, and want to make things for others which remind them of people and places they love. I have a history in education and also enjoy printmaking and sewing.
