Cat is a designer and maker of beautiful hand built ceramics inspired by plants and nature which feature the imprints and textures of flowers and plants that she grows in her garden and also finds on her walks about the South Coast of England.

Cat has a huge love for the natural world and is constantly on the look out for nature’s textures and colours that inspire her range of gifts and home decorative ceramics.  She also loves to experiment and tries unusual processes and the use of recycled glass has now become somewhat of a signature in her work.

All of her work is individually hand built stoneware using a mix of techniques such as slab work, pinching, coiling and direct modelling. The joy of these processes, though much more time consuming is that every pieces is truly unique and individual.

Her new range of tableware is inspired by exotic cultures and far away lands which explores the concepts of mixing beauty and form with complete function. All her tableware is 100% food safe, dishwasher proof and microwavable.

What drew Cat to making with clay was the strength and permanency of ceramics. Her pieces will look as good now as they will in a hundred years’ time.
