In 2004, whilst living in Paris, I managed to find a shared space at a studio. At the time a fellow potter/ceramicist was offering courses. When she became pregnant and could no longer work, I took over her teaching and continued the courses. This led me to explore the vast collection of work at the Sévres Ceramics Museum in Paris. I created a set of works titled En Révolution—a ceramic reflection on the French Revolution. These pots were glazed with a red raku crackle glaze, gold lustre handles and beauty spots—signifying riches and wealth; aligned slightly off centre to denote the collapse of the monarchy.
