Additional information 

“I enjoyed making silver jewellery as a hobby for years and a friend persuaded me when I was 50 to go to University and do a degree in 3D Design. I had worked as an accountant for over 30 years and believed I had no artistic abilities. I fell in love with ceramics and found myself torn between metal and clay. While doing my degree I developed my own peat ash glaze using the Mayo turf ash from the stove and I love the combination of this with a shiny white glaze. I recycle silver and love using old copper pipes to make little boxes to contain treasures. When I was a student I rummaged through the 3D print bins and designed my jewellery using the 3D print waste.”
