In her ceramic work, Michelle uses a mix of handbuilt, press mould and thrown techniques, creating work that is tactile and visually pleasing. Lines and text are inscribed into the surfaces and slips and oxides applied.
Her functional work embodies both utility and content, acting simultaneously as art pieces, whilst complementing the food within. This seems to enrich the eating experience. Each individual piece embodies its own character, giving an internal life of its own.
Michelle has worked as an assistant to Rob Bibby at Woodnewton Pottery as well as with saltglazer Christine Pedley in La Borne, France.
