The Artist

Hello, I'm Jo.

I've always been passionate about art and design, though my career didn't begin in ceramics. I have a degree in Graphic Design and  pursued a career as a freelance designer for 12 years in London. 

My career in graphic design ended soon after family life began. I moved to rural Oxfordshire, which is where my journey with ceramics began and where I started my first business, Uffington Potters, with another budding ceramicist.

My work is inspired by the world around me, whether it be blackbirds in the garden, seeing a beautiful hare on a walk or a trip to the nearest city!

 

I use a lot of colour in my work and my decorating technique using paper masks and coloured slip means that all my pieces are unique.

 

I discovered the joys of pit firing a few years ago. It is a completely different way of firing and decorating pots for me. The blank pots are placed in a pit with organic materials and oxides and set alight. The flames from the fire dictate the design and the results are magical! Check out the gallery for some examples.

I hope to hear from you soon!
