The source of inspiration for Louisa's work stems from museum collections of 18th Century dining vessels. The subtle colour palette of the range is directly influenced by hand painted decoration on historical tureens. She deconstructs each individual colour and matches it with glaze, combining this with honed forms. Each piece is made from porcelain and thrown on the potters wheel.
Alongside making her work, Louisa is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Brighton and a professional member of the Crafts Potters Association & Contemporary Applied Arts, London. In 2012, Louisa undertook a six-month post as artist in residence at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
Louisa is the author of Ceramics: Tools and Techniques for the Contemporary Maker, published by Jacqui Small Publishing (2011).
