Container in an architectural mood, 2016

A prizewinner in the Cheongiu International Craft Bienniale in Korea in 2011, she has exhibited throughout Korea and in Taiwan and Denmark.

Specialising in pinched pots, she explores both domestic ware and sculpture. In 2014 she spent 6 months as artist in residence at Guldagergaard International Ceramic Research Centre in Denmark. While she was there, she experimented with wood firing, an experience which has profoundly affected her working methods. She is currently artist in residence at the Clay Arch Museum in Korea, where she is developing new work.
