Rose makes whimsical slab built ceramics, which are hand painted and embellished with gold.
Making her ceramics through a slab building technique enables Rose to create unusual and organic shapes with clay. Rose believes that functional items can also be beautiful, she intends for her ceramics to be used everyday and not just to be decorative. Her creations are also inspired by the love of hosting and cooking, wanting to create ceramics which bring character to serving food and spending time with friends and family.
Rose graduated at University of the Arts London, in Surface Design in 2015. After her degree she moved back home to Bristol, setting up her own ceramic studio called Wood Studio after meeting a retired potter who wanted to sell their equipment. Over the years it's been a ceramic studio to many other ceramic friends, but it is currently being used as Roses own studio.
Rose welcome visitors to the studio, so if you're curious to see what is going on behind the big wooden doors, get in touch. You can purchase ceramics directly from the studio with a 10% discount.
Rose also holds pottery workshops at Wood Studio.

Kintsugi - The beauty of imperfect repair
Kintsugi is an old Japanese art fixing broken pottery with gold.
According to legend, the craft commenced when Japanese shogun Ashikaga Yoshimasa sent some of his cracked pottery back to China to undergo repairs. When it returned, Yoshimasa was displeased to find that it had been mended with unsightly metal staples. The craftsmen then had to think of a new aesthetically pleasing method of repair, and Kintsugi was born.
I offer a Kintsugi service where I can repair ceramics through Kintsugi. Please send me a picture of your broken ceramics and I will get back to you on whether I can fix it and I will quote you a price.
