Artists Statement

Artists Statement

My motivation to create with clay and brushwork comes from being completely seduced by their subtle properties and the depth of practice required to master them.

History and Background

History and Background

Mia is a full time artist specialising in porcelain, producing hand thrown and hand painted functional and decorative ceramics. Her studio is located in Chalgrove, Oxfordshire.

Mia began working with ceramics in 1991, spending an initial seven years as an artist in an English Delftware studio. She then moved into designing and making her own work, spending time learning and working with other potters. Following a Queen Elizabeth Scholarship (QEST scholarship) in 2004, Mia has worked exclusively with porcelain.

Over the years, Mia has had notable achievements. She was a Craftsman Highly Commended Newcomer at The British Craft Trade Fair in 2003 and featured in July 2003 and 2004 magazines. In the past she has supplied pottery to Fortnum and Mason making tea caddies, jam, honey and mustard pots for their grocery department.

In July 2013, Mia was invited to participate in the QEST exhibition at the Coronation Festival in the grounds of Buckingham Palace. She made pottery dog bowls, decorated with corgis and horses in the restored Summerhouse in the grounds.

Internationally, Mia showed work at Shanghai Design Week 2014 and has begun to work with stockists in USA and Europe. She has exhibited in heart of London's Design District at Designed-Crafted in 2014 and 2015 for London Design Week, and at the Mall Galleries with the Society of Designer Craftsmen in 2015.

Mia took part in the inaugural London Craft Week May 2015 in Make/Create, a unique project involving a collaboration between contemporary fine art and traditional crafts, exploring points of intersection between the two disciplines and challenging perceptions of both in the process. Recently in September 2016 Mia was one of 10 designers invited to decorate a cast of the famous Heal's Cat, which she completed in store. Around the same time she worked on a project for The Courtauld Gallery shop, to produce a collection of ceramics inspired by their Rodin Exhibition. These featured dancers and acrobats in incredible poses during movement.
