A selection of her work

Bridget's influences come principally from the classical forms of European and Oriental ceramics.

Inspired by museum collections and the work of contemporary artists such as Lucie Rie and Geoffrey Whiting, Bridget has reached the point where, secure in her shapes and production concepts, she can now explore the minutest of touches.

Her elegant and functional shapes are enhanced by the subtle use of glazes, the addition of silver clasps and attachments (made by a jeweller friend) and the use of decorative wooden handles on some of her pieces.
