Amy works exclusively with the very special qualities of Porcelain; its purity and whiteness and most unique of all, its translucency, creating beautifully diffused lighting pieces.
Designed and made from her studio by the sea in Shoreham, Sussex, Amy’s translucent lighting and bespoke artworks showcase the natural translucency of porcelain ceramic.
Beauty, authenticity and simplicity to purpose define this fresh collection of handmade porcelain lights.
Amy is inspired by the ever changing seascapes on the beach where she lives and works. Simple lines in the landscape bring the natural world indoors in natural glowing porcelain lighting for the home.
As a small studio Amy can respond quickly to custom requirements and work collaboratively to design entire pieces to fulfil that dream scheme.
Drop us a line. Let’s make something beautiful.
“It is the most plastic of materials in its raw state, suffering itself to be shaped, with marvellous readiness, into every conceivable delicacy and variety of form and movement, yet when once fired, these forms and delicacies become everlasting; these movements and rhythms of the ornamentation preserve with the persistence every poetic and airy nothing that the creative imagination has imparted to them” Louis Sullivan c1890
Amy’s background in manufacturing ceramics for architecture help refine her skill and understanding of clay and how ceramics behave. But more recently her Masters in Historic Environment Conservation and subsequent Winston Churchill Fellowship has informed the direction of Flux Surface and translucency in interior spaces.
For her Fellowship Amy travelled to the USA for 8 weeks to study applications of ceramics in architecture both historically as well as through innovation in the material today. The provenance and durability of architectural ceramics is inspiring and the exuberance and artistry with which ceramic sculptors and architects enhance our environment is what drives Amy to bring something new to the palette; translucency in architecture.

Studio visits are available by appointment and commissions for bespoke artworks and lighting are welcome.
