Alice Funge

Producing a fully functioning vessel from a ball of clay using only a wheel and her hands is something that fascinates Alice; manipulating the clay to create any form she can is a concept she loves. Her inspiration comes from everyday marks created during our daily routines, particularly in cooking and baking. She replicates these marks in clay and coloured slip, producing a permanent feature from a temporary, mundane activity.

The writing on the pieces are snippets of Alice’s late grandmother’s old recipes, which give a distinctive style and narrative to her work. Ever since she had the idea to produce a range of table ware she wanted to add something special to it – her late grandmother’s own recipes seemed the perfect idea, adding a personal touch to an already unique, handmade collection.
