Bel makes everything in her studio in the beautiful Peak District. The pieces are thrown on the wheel, trimmed and fired to bisque in the kiln to 1000 degrees. The pieces are glazed before firing them again to 1250 degrees. The process can take up to 3 weeks and every item is small batch and unique.

Handmade ceramics by their nature are individual and unique so sizes may vary slightly.
Bel was born and raised in the beautiful Peak District which is a constant pool of inspiration for her.
She studied Fine Art in London and Manchester where Bel worked using various mediums including painting and sculpture until settling into working with clay and ceramics - and teaching herself to throw on the wheel.
