Fortnum and Makers and I have created a special collection of Teacups and Saucers for this first floor exhibition.

“Without further ado, let us introduce to you our Fortnum & Makers campaign where we’re delighted to be sharing our Piccadilly home with some of Britain's most accomplished creators. Each the maker of wonderful things, we recognise those who strive to keep traditions alive through their craft and celebrate those who go against the tide to forge their own methods of creating.

It’s with pleasure that we introduce you to our Makers - a collection of British-based designers and craftspeople so wonderfully talented that they’ll knock your socks off “

From Wednesday 23rd November 2022

Over the last few months I have created a special collection for TMT. Susanna has curated a selection that combines small found ceramic pieces from the Thames foreshore, metal thread and gold to create individual pieces that embody a sense of treasure and history. There are plates large and small, platters in miniature and full size, small ’treasure bowls’, cups and containers.

See TMT website for full details.

Hidden Treasure - Tea Bowls & Saucers as part of The Shop Floor Project annual online exhibition.

Launching 2nd of December 2022. Learn more at

After the lockdown directive on March 24rd I was struck by a phrase I heard describing “the weight of uncertainty”. I decided to translate this expression into a clay weight of 1 oz per day. 7oz in 7 days. I made a vessel everyday describing any feelings or information relevant to that day. I also wrote the date on the base of each piece.


The accumulated uncertainty over the ensuing 103 days of official lockdown are visually represented in this collection of vessels. They are all the same weight, are around 3-5 cm high and made of white and black earthenware clay. The darker clay reflecting days of darker mood. I stopped making them on July 4th when so many of the lockdown measures were lifted. 

On January 4th a third national lockdown was announced and I returned to my previous project The Weight of Uncertainty.  


This new work in progress is Part 2.  


Once again I am using 1 oz of clay  as the weight for each thrown vessel and I am making one for every day of this lockdown. The accumulating vessels represent the passing days and the weight of uncertainty felt within them. So far I have only used dark clay.
