Mecki Allen hART Chair
It all began when Mecki witnessed the magic that transforms a ball of clay into a beautiful vessel. This experience sowed the seed that, years later, led to her leaving a career in law to learn the skills of working with clay.
In her micro-pottery by the sea, Mecki now creates series of functional ceramics and exhibition pieces in earthenware, stoneware and Raku.
Recently teamed up with her illustrator daughter and fellow hARTist Zanna, Mecki creates pieces that form a canvas for Zanna’s art. Scenes of flora and fauna are applied over inhouse glazes typically producing hues of blue and green – Mecki's favourite colours of country, sea and sky.
All work is fired using energy harvested from solar panels, the protection of the environment being close to Mecki's heart.
Decorative and durable, Mecki's distinctive ceramics are designed to bring beauty and joy to the everyday.
