Meet Tina

I love working with clay and am always fascinated how combining the four elements; earth (clay), water, air and fire (heat produced in the kiln during Firing) produces a timeless piece. Also by combining these four elements, there is an element of unpredictability and surprise in the outcome!

My aim is to facilitate an awareness of one’s unique creativity in an unpressured environment.

I started doing Pottery in 1997 when my five-year-old son started. I found children’s uninhibited creativity very encouraging. I have been working with clay since. Although I love making the big pots (using coils) I also use other methods including slab projects and pinch pots, and I am always trying new ideas.

I opened the Creative Clay Studio in 2011 and I aim to not only enhance my creative skills but to facilitate others to discover theirs too.
