Jessica is a ceramic designer-maker of high-end functional and decorative objects.
She is charmed with the ability a handmade object has to allow an everyday ritual become more pleasurable. With this in mind she aims to design and make functional objects for others and herself by focusing on a simple aesthetic whilst showing off the pure quality of the ceramic.
The aesthetic and design of manufactured metal tins hasn’t changed for over 200 years. Fascinated by this curious fact Jessica designs and makes functional hand-built porcelain vessels inspired by the characteristics and forms of metal tins. These vessels primarily take form as cups, jugs, tea caddies and spoons and the collection is constantly developing and growing. The process of her work is driven by a belief of the value and importance of celebrating craftsmanship embraced through her elusive joining technique, which naturally leaves a trail of her maker’s marks. These marks can both be seen and touched allowing the user to have a sensual awareness of her craftsmanship and the handmade.
