Rhian trained at Camberwell College of Arts.
Inspired by her Grandmother’s collection of Willow Pattern, Rhian continues the long historic tradition of hand-painting porcelain with cobalt-blue decoration. Her wheel-thrown vessels provide the perfect whiteness to apply deep blue linear geometric patterns. Each piece is individually decorated with a very steady hand leaving no room for error.
All of her work is glazed in an oxidised firing and carries a stamped makers mark RM. Rhian is a young rising potter who has already enjoyed considerable success in the space of just a few years. Having won support from the Crafts Council UK through their prestigious Hothouse Programme in 2016 she has gone on to be awarded Best Ceramics at the Contemporary Craft Festival (2017) Best ‘New Business’ at The Great Northern Contemporary Craft Festival (2017) and a Highly Commended Newcomer Award at Ceramic Art London(2018).
Rhian participated in ‘A Pot in The Hand’ Exhibition held at The Round House Gallery in May 2018. New work has remained in stock since then.
Rhian continues to exhibit throughout the UK and is clearly a young talent to look out for. Numerous magazines have recognised the rise of her distinctive work which has included :-
House and Garden 2014.
Homes and Antiques 2016.
Ceramic Review 2016.
Absolute Home Magazine 2017.
