Bolden Ceramics

With the desire to challenge my process and apply my drawings to something other than paper, I began using hand-building techniques and brushwork to create small ceramic objects in 2013, before furthering my skills by learning how to throw on the wheel. I've continued my practice from there, creating tangible versions of my illustrations and adding hand-drawn elements to thrown pieces.

Keep Company

Keep Company was a collaboration by myself and Shayna Stevenson between summer 2015 and summer 2017; each piece was wheel-thrown by Shayna and hand-illustrated/glazed by me in our studio in Toronto. Items ranged from little jewellery dishes to vases for flowers, and could be found in stores across Canada and the US.
