Since being a small girl I have loved to draw and was encouraged to develop this through my childhood. My excitement for the magical possibilities of clay began at Art college and these feelings have never faded.

This word translated from Italian means 'to scratch away' and has been used by many cultures to decorate buildings, paintings and pottery. It was first used in China during the 11th and 12th century AD and in Europe during the 16th century as relief decoration on buildings.
