Tell us a bit about yourself
I live in the Yarra Valley of Melbourne. I’ve grown up with the gums and rivers and natural beauty all around me and so have a huge respect for nature and I would say this is one of my passions. My biggest hobby is pottery, and how I express myself creatively.
What made you start your company?
I began pottery as a small hobby, something to do creatively and a new skill to learn in my spare time. I did a 3 hour class each Saturday and loved it so much. It was all I would think about during the week and I could wait to get back there each Saturday to continue. I would always be thinking about the forms I could make, if this glaze and this glaze would work together, what technique I could use on which mug etc. After a while I had so many pieces that I couldn’t find a use for so I decided to sell them on my Etsy shop and it just continued from there. My little business is just a continuous exploration of techniques and forms.
Tell me about your product and brand?
My pottery is an attempt to reflect where it is made. Where I live, I am lucky enough to see the cycles of nature year on year, see the amazing blooms on the gumtrees and the animals thrive. I tend to lean towards bright colours, pinks, oranges, purples, blues and greens and this is reflective of the gumnut flowers and leaves I see around me. My product is a way of bringing that beauty inside the home and to brighten the every day of the recipient.
