Simple Noshi Symbol

Alice Ross





The slow and quiet process of making something by hand is filled with meaning from the moment an idea comes to light...

right up to the moment you gaze over the final creation to see it reflect back the essence of a story that was once laying within, waiting to be expressed. It can be incredibly intimate.

Honey for the soul.

IN the studio

These expressions are as pure as a simple thought, a momentary curiosity, a distant memory or place. I translate these thoughts into the clay, taking care to shape each piece by hand with patience and dedication. The handmade nature of the pieces hold imperfections born from the making process and I seek to capture those moments in the clay rather than cover them up. Thumb marks in shaping a surface, a wobble or bump indenting the soft clay at the moment the piece is lifted off the wheel and placed on a shelf to dry.

I love that these markings can endure. They evoke a sense of story, a journey, a moment beyond time, something to be held and treasured.

A gentle reminder to be at peace with our own imperfections.

what i do

IN the MUD


An earthy and messy medium, clay extends connection to the natural world...

where I always find beauty, complexity - endless inspiration for these human expressions.

Perhaps the most meaningful moments in the studio process are the lessons. The patience, dedication and self discovery.

As you look deeper, you discover more.
