Penny took up pottery seriously several years ago at the Cube in Folkestone, having dabbled intermittently at various points until then. She has acquired additional skills while working in Croatia.
She works as a potter in Hythe and Folkestone and has a fast-growing reputation for her delicate, hand-built pots in their organic style as well as the larger coiled, gourd-shape vessels. Working with both Raku and stoneware, she loves the excitement and unpredictability of what might emerge from the kiln.
Penny loves the rhythm and tempo of hand-building which is like a meditation to her. She sees ceramics as a creative and magical fusion of earth, fire, water and air.
