Louisa set up her ceramic business in south-east London in October 2006.
‘The source of inspiration for my work stems from museum collections of eighteenth century porcelain wares. The subtle colour palette of the range is directly influenced by the hand painted decoration on historical tureens and grand vessels. I am fascinated by the rituals of dining and the role of tableware in contemporary dining. I create objects for the table that aim not to prescribe specific functions but instead encourage sharing and relaxed eating.’
Alongside making her work, Louisa is a Lecturer on the 3D Design and Craft course at the University of Brighton and she is a professional member of the Crafts Potters Association and Contemporary Applied Arts, London. In her practice, Louisa consults as a freelance designer for industry, including concept/form development and colour consultancy. Clients include J Wedgwood and American online home-ware company, Teroforma.
