Harriet completed a Fine Art degree in 1983 at Portsmouth specialising in sculpture and went on to work for 16 years in the Film and TV industry both here and in Australia as a prop maker, then production buyer and set dresser. After her second child she returned to college at Richmond Adult Education and completed an HNC in Ceramics. She set up her own studio in Teddington and went on to complete a two year Ceramic Diploma at City Lit in London.
Harriet’s work is intuitive and experimental inspired by the natural world. Human relations and emotions inform her decision-making. She enjoys pushing the boundaries of the clay form using porcelain slips and oxides, wires, fibreglass and being free from restrictions.
Harriet has exhibited at the V&A, The Mall Gallery, New Designers, Islington and Whatever Next exhibition at Mile End Art pavilion and The A and D Gallery , Marylebone.
