Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage

Staithes Festival has established itself as one of the friendliest festival on the coast – a must-go-to event in the regional arts calendar.

During the weekend some 100+ cottages in the village become temporary art galleries in a unique selling exhibition. Staithes heritage is also celebrated in fossils, fishing, historic photographs and film shows.

My work is inspired by North East coastline. Rolled out clay is textured and impressed with seaweed, shells and objects found on the beach, and then formed into dishes and bowls, Oxides are applied to bisque fired pots to highlight different areas. Dishes are multi-glazed using a variety of glazes. Glass is placed in the base of the dish to create the impression of a rock pool and then fired to stoneware (1250oC) in an electric kiln. I also make boulder and crevice pots, which are coiled. Each piece is individual.
