Tin Glaze pottery was first developed in Persia and by the 8th C. was being used in Spain. Through the Spanish island of Majorca the technique travelled to Italy and during the Renaissance it became known as maiolica. It’s popularity spread through Europe because the white opaque glaze was prized as a substitute for Chinese porcelain. In France it was known as faience and in England and Holland as delftware.

I has long been inspired by the festive colours and motifs of European maiolica. A white opaque glaze provides the background on which she hand paints her bold colourful patterns and motifs. Individually wheel thrown or hand built with earthenware clay they are glazed and decorated with a desire to transform the everyday into something unique and special.
