With a background in horticulture, Bekky has always enjoyed getting her hands in the earth. In her studio, she merges her passion for nature with her love of designing and making. At the heart of her creative concept is The Biophilia Effect, which relates to our primal instinct for a connection with the natural world, a subject she studied in depth during her recent MA. The intention of her ceramic work is to reflect on the psychology of this human urge for a closeness with the wilderness. Her studio is nestled on a farm in the Sussex countryside, surrounded by rolling hills and woodlands. Her daily interactions with her surrounding environment provide a calming flow of inspiration, which she mindfully channels into her creative practice. She aims to convey this in her newly designed Plant Pods and Serenity vessels, which are etched with soft ripples.
