I love the process of creating beautiful things out of clay and love seeing my work going out in the world and bringing love and joy to others. The inspiration for the name and for the design of my work comes from the same place where I come from, a small section on the ancient Silk Way, which connected East and West and allowed both influences to shape the nations along the way. Its that fusion of East and West, old and new, traditional and modern, simple and embellished that interests me.
All Silkwayceramics products are handmade by me in my lovely light filled studio in Crows Nest, NSW, Australia. I use various clays for wheel throwing, slip casting and hand building different pieces. On my tableware I use factory made and food safe glazes. On my non food related items I often use glazes I make myself. I consider my work to be functional art and hope it brings as much joy to people who live with my work as I get from making them.
