Message in a  Bottle

Handmade Porcelain bottles with ‘fired’ in messages to special people, messages written on paper, placed in the wet clay, formed into a bottle and dried then fired in forever - no one can see them ever again - burnt into the clay and burnt into the air - a wish, a prayer, a memory, a letter- what would you say and to whom? 

Nazareth House

A special commission for the residents of Nazareth House, Stonehouse Plymouth - playing with clay in the afternoons, drinking tea and talking about memories - all the while they watch and guide artist Caroline on their own garden lights - based on Smeaton’s Tower - exhibited as part of Illuminate 2019
