Melanie graduated with a degree in ceramics in 1990. She works from her garden studio in King’s Heath, Birmingham.
She makes abstract stoneware wall panels. They explore the relationship between colour, form and light.
Melanie’s work is a personal response to different landscapes. Some pieces evoke the rich landscapes of Provence and Barcelona. Drawing upon hilltop towns, mountains, cypress trees and weathered buildings.
Inspirations closer to home are the rock formations and coastlines of the Cornish and Welsh landscapes
