Photo session, making Freeforms, with Ben Boswell. It was a privilege to work with Ben who is such an expert in photographing ceramics in the making. I was inspired to return to the Freeforms for their dramatic visual effects and in doing so discovering possibilities to develop them further.

My black and white thrown Freeform bottles are now being marketed by AUTHOR INTERIORS. This Edinburgh based interior design company is a distinctive brand in luxurious interior design.
