Afro Retro in My Studio

Having developed several ranges throughout my ceramics career, I'm always driven by the desire to change, develop and create something new in my work. My latest range, the Afro Retro Range, aims to reawaken a nostalgic artistic era, of modern funk and 70's decor, spiced up with a contemporary African edge. 

Pastels overlap a thick black glaze forming an unusual contrast of light and dark, with an exciting middle ground where the colours blend unpredictably. The forms have taken on a new look - simple shapes with Retro inspired spouts and angular handles.
