    The Thira collection of jewellery and ceramics is inspired by my travels to Greece last year. It is a theme that I will be exploring for a while because there is so much more to say through making! Blue is a colour one sees everywhere in Greece from the ubiquitous Greek flag, to the sea, church cupolas, the ever present mati (evil eye) and the sky of course. I came away from Santorini lusting after those beautiful chalky blues seen on all domed churches clustered around the caldera. I’ve tried to replicate those colours, textures and forms with glaze on porcelain and through soft geometric forms in ceramics and metal. It’s very hard for me to articulate just how much I loved travelling through this part of Greece instead I will let the pictures do the talking.

    I love the way a Fob functions – the clasp is the star feature. Here I have oversized the fob, used simple shapes and oxidised the silver. Sometimes I like to mix up the chains. I look forward to expanding this idea in 2015.

    I close my laptop, put my tools down, rest my hands, close my eyes and forget about everything as we journey to Athens, Crete and Santorini. See you mid October.
