Simple gifts and homewares inspired by the coast
A freelance stage manager by night and maker of things by day. I live on the Isle of Wight, just around the corner from the sea. My theatre work takes me away from home on a regular basis but there is nothing better than getting on the ferry home and filling my lungs with sea air again.
I love the textures and muted colours of driftwood and sea glass and can often be found on the beach, bag in hand, searching for treasures. These beachcombed finds are used to make unique buttons and driftwood pictures. Unbleached cotton rope is made into simple, elegant shaped bowls and dishes finished with driftwood or a splash of coastal colour.
