Functional Ware

Creating pieces which serve functionally as well as appearing beautifully at the table or kitchen has been a priority of mine for years. In the Bed and Breakfast which I run with my husband Pete, only my own pottery is used for mixing, cooking and serving food.

Working mostly with white porcelainous stoneware, I use layered glazes to create subtle and gorgeous surfaces. All my functional ware is lead free. It is fired to 1300 degrees centigrade in a natural gas kiln.

My glazes are dishwasher, oven and microwave safe. They may be used in the fridge or freezer. It is best to remove a dish from the freezer and allow it to thaw before putting into a hot oven.
