Hello, I'm Jo.
I've always been passionate about art and design, though my career didn't begin in ceramics. I graduated from Trent Polytechnic with a degree in graphic design, pursuing 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. I created my first business, Uffington Potters, with another budding ceramicist.
Moonhare Ceramics marks a new chapter in my career. Hares are a local resident in the Oxfordshire countryside and feature heavily in my work, which is where the studio name was inspired.
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 have recently discovered the joys of pit firing, a completely different way of producing pots, resulting in individual, beautiful pieces emerging from the fire pit.
I hope to hear from you soon!
