Michelle creates functional ceramics that are tactile and visually pleasing, using a mix of hand built, press mold and thrown techniques. Lines and text, often snippets of thoughts or poetry written during her travels, are inscribed into the surfaces and slips applied.
'Landlines' is Michelle's latest range. Living in the East Yorkshire Wolds she is surrounded by agriculture in all directions. Throughout the seasons, there is a constant visual source of changing field colours and markings. Yellow, oil seed rape being predominant in late spring, kick started the palette for this range. Being elevated, there are some great vistas to be seen when coming off the Wolds: field markings, tractor scarring, fence and hedge boundaries all blend to create the 'Landlines' series.
