Discover the world of ceramics with Florence, a creative force with a passion for sculptural expression through clay.
Florence's artistic journey began with a Fine Art degree from Wimbledon College of Art, followed by an MA from the renowned Slade School of Fine Art. It was here that ceramics first captured her imagination, intertwining with her sculptural practice. The pandemic served as a catalyst for change, propelling Florence to immerse herself in ceramics, culminating in a flourishing career shift.
Starting as a sculpture and installation artist, Florence crafted monumental, site-specific installations using various materials. She also honed her skills in exhibition management at art galleries. As her passion for ceramics deepened, Florence's sculptor background now influences her vibrant, sculptural ceramic designs, breathing life into everyday objects.
Florence's ceramics champion conscious living, individuality and originality, urging us to reject mass-produced items in favour of supporting local artisans. Through her work, she encourages us to embrace slow shopping, invest in handmade pieces, and celebrate the beauty of unique creations.
Running workshops is Florence's way of merging her love for ceramics with a desire to inspire others. Sharing knowledge and fostering creativity is her driving force. Guiding individuals to explore their artistic side, learn new skills, and experience the joy of creation is what motivates her.
