Based in West Dorset, Caroline produces handmade ceramic products which include tiles presented as multiples in framed collections, buttons and coasters.
The tiles are produced using a porcelain clay decorated with a white glaze. Images from her drawings, prints and photographs are then applied in the form of a platinum transfer decoration. The drawings are in direct response to the found objects Caroline collects from the West Dorset coastline as well as botanical illustrations and drawings she makes in natural history collections and museums. Her work explores fragments and partial imagery reflecting the incomplete fossils and fragments she collects on the beach.
"Transfer decoration is a clean and practical way of marrying the handmade with small batch production enabling me to experiment with scale, composition and presentation. These techniques allow me to draw upon my training as both a ceramicist and a museum professional."
