Michelle is a studio potter, making small batches of hand-thrown and decorated earthenware pots in her garden workshop on the outskirts of Edinburgh. She also makes one-off exhibition pieces and commissions.

The inspiration for the lively, detailed decoration on her pots is drawn from the plants, flowers and berries in her garden and nearby hedgerows. Her pieces are made from red earthenware clay coated in cream slip and then decorated with coloured slips and oxides and sgraffito lines.

The decoration on her pots is drawn from the plants, flowers and berries in her garden and nearby hedgerows. Some favourites are dandelions, snowdrops, primroses, wild garlic, bluebells, and autumnal hips and haws and berries.
