I have been involved in art since a young age and I studied one of the Art University in Turkey, graduating in 1997 with the bachelor’s degree in Ceramic Art and Design.
I am an experienced ceramicist with over 20 years of studio experience. In 2016 I opened my garden studio in the New Forest and been designing and making handmade ceramics from there.
My functional work includes inspiration from nature and my forest surroundings, creating a transformation from raw clay material into objects of beauty through shape, textures, colour, and design -resulting in a tactile experience.
I create my contemporary work by imagining the balance of simplicity, between colour, shape and texture. My enjoyment of making is a meditative process where the clay form gradually evolves, together with the texture and colour. Each piece therefore is unique and individual.
I sell my work at galleries, artisan craft festivals around New Forest, Hampshire and Dorset. www.etsy.com/uk/shop/isdiceramics ,
I am also accepting commissions. Work commissioned “New Forest Runners “, “Minstead Study Centre “and many more private commissioned.
Work exhibited Rum’s Eg Gallery, Hayloft Art Gallery, Hampshire Open Studio and St Barbes Museum and Art Gallery
I recently started sharing my experience and teaching with people who would love to make their ceramics and pottery and learn new skill.
