Gemma’s work reflects inspiration from the ocean and interesting rocks found at the beach. Her work was born from a desire to mimic the fascinating patterns and striking lines of ‘wishing rocks’, which are pebbles that contain an uninterrupted line or stripe that runs around the whole surface.
She creates this effect using stained porcelain which is marbled together with plain clay on the wheel. This technique can create both controllable and random lines and swirls, making every piece unique. The patterns which run through the Antipasto Boards are often reminiscent of stormy skies and seascapes. Every piece has its own unique landscape and character, with some being bolder than others.
Her pieces add beauty to any home and can be enjoyed for years.
