Crafty Wee Birdie is a small business based in Aberdeen that makes artwork and jewellery.
My work explores contemporary culture and universal themes but also responds to current events both political and personal. I express ideas using humour, creating unlikely scenarios or ridiculous juxtapositions to draw the reader into narratives with a smile before being faced with a mildly chiding finger. The figures are usually earthenware decorated with commercial glazes and stains. I use other materials such as epoxy and steel to achieve dynamic poses and will often have ancillary objects to create a sense of theatre.
I am a hobbyist potter and have worked with clay for over six years now. I became addicted to forming pots from clay after attending a pottery class and crave learning as much as possible about the craft. I mainly throw on the wheel but also enjoy hand-building pieces from both earthenware and stoneware clay. Most of my work is decorative with many pieces being hand painted with my own designs and occasionally with my favourite flower, a sunflower.
