The studio specialises in making small, affordable sculptures for home and garden, usually on metal stems, and supplies the RHS, National Trust, Kew and many other shops and nurseries. Some of my designs, such as the Twisted Bud and Opening Pod, have gone on to form part of the core collection, whilst the sleeping head products are usually one-offs which sell for higher prices. I

  • 'Fauna' Photo Series
    'Fauna' Photo SeriesPart of my research for my Diorama projects involved me placing miniature ceramic animal figurines directly into wild habitats.
