About

Thanks for stopping by. If you’re looking for something a little unique, a little special, that’s been hand-crafted in the deep south of New Zealand, you’re in the right place.

I create wheel throw, hand made functional ceramic ware from a tiny little studio in Queenstown, new Zealand.

The world of ceramics is pretty new for me with my college years spent in the dark room, both digital and “old school” behind the lens of the camera. I studied Fine Arts at the College of Design & Arts with a focus on photography and 3D sculpture. Post college I spent a few years retouching, working for many clients around the world including the American History Museum, Top Model, Vogue, Remix Magazine, Michael Morrison and more.

Fast-forward to today and I’m shipping ceramics around New Zealand and the world from my little garage studio. In just a few short months I’ll be taking the next step, opening a ceramic studio and retail store in Queenstown. I can’t wait to share more, follow me on social media for the latest updates.
