Hi! I’m Hollie, a ceramicist and designer-maker based in Lancashire, UK. I make colourful, functional home-ware that serves a purpose whilst spreading joy!
I first fell in love with ceramics when I was introduced to small batch production methods such as the traditional techniques of wheel-throwing, mold-making and slip-casting. After graduating in 2019, I set up my studio with the intention of offering pottery workshops alongside creating my pieces.
