I came across Sharon's work while looking through Google Images at other potters, in particular, Australian potters.
On her website, she states, "I am a potter. I began making pots after work in London as a buyer in fashion and homewares. When I moved to a place in outback Australia where there was no such work I found somewhere I could make pots instead, and there I fell in love with clay and its processes."
She now lives in Melbourne and creates work by utilizing all forming methods, pinch, slab, coil, and throwing. She fires in a gas kiln and lets the clay, glazes and the elements of firing dictate the way she creates her work.
