An interview for UK Clay Users

27th February 2012
A few weeks ago, I was contacted through Etsy by Carmen of Orimui, who wanted to know if I'd be interested in doing an interview for the UK Clay Users, a group of British based artisans specialising in all sorts of clay. I had recently joined their team on Etsy, and I was delighted to have been asked. What followed was a thought-provoking, enlightening and above all fun experience whereby Carmen emailed me single questions, and I emailed my replies. In this way, we built up an ongoing dialogue that was much more revealing and participatory than just working through a list of questions.

As a result, this has been the most in-depth interview I have ever given, and I am so glad to have had the chance to reflect on my journey so far. Thank you, Carmen, and happy reading!

  1. Gosh, your work is amazing. You had the talent even at 8 years.

  2. I adore your mice and other sculptures but the psychiatrist and patient are utterly amazing! I hope whatever his or her issues are, they are happily resolved :)

    So cute and now heading off to read your interview :)

    1. They made me giggle a lot, and that's how I know when they're as they want to be, if that makes sense ;)
