I divide my time between my growing Ceramic flower business – Bron’s Ceramics , my part time medical career as a GP and my cricketing boys and husband.
My journey with clay started in 2009 in England, with adult pottery classes as an outlet for managing life’s stressors. I evolved from the love of throwing bowls on a wheel, to making 2 dimensional ceramic miniature mosaic tiles. It was in 2014 that I started experimenting with the 3 dimensional aspect of hand building clay flowers in an attempt to recreate the glorious English Cottage Garden. I now endeavour to recreate the perfect flower bouquet that lasts forever.
I draw inspiration from my passion for gardening, attempting to capture the beauty of a freshly cut bunch of wildflowers in ceramic whilst drawing on my past flora experiences growing up in South Africa, then England and now Western Australia. My range now reflects my favorite flowers from every country I have lived in… with Australian Natives being my new passion.
Each petal and leaf is hand formed by myself from Earthenware clay and kiln fired in my home workshop in Perth. The delicate blossoms are hand painted with a few coats of glaze before their second firing and then placed onto stems.
