“I love ceramics. Each day brings me new challenges. I adore the idea of bringing a still piece of clay to life, giving it a unique personality, something for everyone to enjoy. I admire this medium. It is really hands-on, every piece evolves as I work on it. The textures, colour, expression and the way I feel become an important part of each individual piece.” Elodie Barker
