We are housed in two listed heritage buildings joined together by an award-winning glass link and are an independent Trust dating from 1957. The Gallery is a registered charity.

I am a ceramic artist based in East Sussex, UK. I completed an MA in Contemporary Crafts in 2012. My current work includes hand-built framed objects and thrown vessels in porcelain, terracotta and mixed-media. I am an Associate member of the Craft Potters Association and am an alumni of the Crafts Council’s Hothouse scheme (2014).
Jewellery has the ability to represent a whole piece of history within a very small space and offers the joy of being able to carry it with you wherever you go. I like jewellery to have a strong identity and character and to bring out different emotions and narratives for its owner.
I work mainly in Mono print, a printmaking technique that is painterly whereby the image is built up in layers of ink on acetate sheets, each one printed on top of the last until I feel that the image is completed. I aim to capture light, atmosphere and mood in my sea/people/animal and landscapes.
