Georgie studied Workshop Ceramics at Harrow between 1993-96.
She ran her studio at The Chocolate Factory in Stoke Newington for ten years before moving to Surrey where she now has a garden studio. She is a member of The Surrey Guild of Craftsmen and a professional member of the CPA.
Georgie creates distinctive vessels and bowls on her potters wheel. Each piece is unique, the decoration is cut from paper by hand and applied to the leather hard clay before brushing on layers of colour. The paper is peeled away to reveal the bold graphic motifs before firing.
Pieces are sanded to create a smooth tactile finish.
I love the sensuality of making pots on the wheel - starting with a shapeless lump of clay, centering and pulling up till it becomes a full bodied pot is very satisfying - I never tire of doing that.work explores a harmony between surface, form and pattern.
