Alchemy; the blending of art, craft and science with method, process and deferred gratification. Like the best experiences, pleasure should be about the journey and not just the destination.
My work is incredibly personal and as much about celebrating and reclaiming my own sexuality and agency as it is about empowering others to embrace theirs. I combine craftsmanship with natural materials and a passion for pleasure to create beautiful, sensual tools and body wear. I encourage others to explore sensuality, intimacy and connection through the most evocative and intimate of objects and rituals.
I established my practice in 2006 after graduating from Central St. Martin's College of Art & Design with a BA Hons in Ceramic Design. Carving out a niche in this area was a natural progression for me as it brings together my interests in beautiful, functional objects, ceramics design, pleasure and human connection.
My sensual tools carry a strong design aesthetic which celebrate form, function and medium while promoting sexual and sensual well-being. The sensual, authentic nature of tactility and the beauty of contrasting materials motivates all aspects of my work and informs my collaborations. Creating objects people can interact with is a key part of my philosophy.
As slow production advocate, I favour small batch or made to order over mass production, focusing my time and energy instead on quality, sustainability and conscious sourcing. Ceramic tools and jewellery are made by my in my London studio; each piece can take over a week to produce and leather is crafted in small batches by an independent London based leather worker. All materials are natural and hypoallergenic and leather is responsibly sourced.
My porcelain marble collection is a place where the essence of masculine and feminine exist in harmony to create a beautiful collection of sensual tools, functional art objects and body adornments. Each piece is produced in special thick-cast, high fired, marbled porcelain known for its beauty and strength and all tools are presented in minimalist handcrafted leather packaging or organic vegan packaging. My work carries a strong visual and sensory narrative that resonates with the ideal of total art; life and art as one.
