Ozone Louise Ceramics

Ozone Louise. It's how I sign my pots. When I was a beginner, my pots were too small to fit my entire name onto, so I used the cat's name. All these decades later, it seems still to have stuck.

I'm the product of an eclectic mish-mash of classes, courses, workshops, and conversations, plus the unshakable idea that I should try most of the ideas I have. I don't draw my ideas, I take them straight to the clay. It's led to some strange creations, but it has always been a fun, wonderful journey.

I work almost exclusively in cone 10 stoneware and porcelain. I alter most of what I make.

I lived near near Cambridge in the UK for 16 years, but now make my home in San Jose, California.
