Behind the gems...

Having grown up on Aotea (Great Barrier Island) of Aotearoa, I've wandered my way from NZ's rolling hills to Australia's coastal paradise in the Northern Rivers.

After studying in a local school in Sydney I now have my own studio to create and share this art form with those who share the curiosity.

Working with clay has taught me so much about myself, and life. Clay teaches patience, flexibility, and the beauty of trying again, and again. I love that ceramics is so accessible, and that even the most weird and wonky pieces can find their beauty.

Creating Earthen Gems has been a slow and thoughtful process but I feel so grateful to have the resources to teach and express my creativity to the community I call home.
