Hello! I'm Steph - a Ceramics Designer/Maker based in Dundee, Scotland predominantly working in Parian porcelain and white stoneware. With an eye for colour and pattern, I draw on my background in Illustration to create contemporary, graphic ceramic jewellery and homewares. Focussing on minimal shapes, combined with bold patterns and a limited colour palette, I aim to create simple and functional, yet beautiful, products to be cherished and used.
My work is know for being playful, yet refined. Minimal in shape, yet boldly patterned. It embraces and embodies contrast through varying textures, finishes, and colour palettes.
Working from my studio in a Victorian jute mill, each piece is hand-crafted using Parian porcelain clay (or stoneware in the case of my Moment Cups) before using underglaze to introduce hand-drawn pattern and illustration directly onto the work. From start to finish, each and every piece goes through a minimum of 9 steps before it’s complete, with care and detail at each stage. The result is a collection of ceramic jewellery and homewares which sit together and interact with each other, but are equally strong alone. Designed with functionality in mind, the minimalist forms of my work allow you to bring your own narrative and explore how you use the objects, which can adapt and change to suit their needs as their home and lifestyle changes over time.
Each piece is imperfectly unique, with subtle differences worth celebrating.
