Alice produces functional vessels from a ball of clay using only a wheel and her hands. She enjoys the process of manipulating the clay and her ability to create a form.
Alice's inspiration comes from everyday marks, created during daily routines, particularly in cooking and baking. She replicates these marks in clay and coloured slip, producing a permanent feature from a temporary, mundane activity.
The words around the rim of the mixing bowls are hand written by Alice's late grandmother and give a narrative to her work. The recipes are transferred to the bowls using ceramic decals or transfers, which are fixed by a firing in the kiln. Ever since she had the idea to produce a range of bakeware she wanted to add something special to it and her grandmother's recipes add a personal touch to an already unique, handmade collection.
Alice is based in Wellesbourne, Warwickshire.
