Inspired by a love of baking, Alice has created a range of functional ceramic kitchenware which is decorated with poured coloured slips that imitate the marks the ingredients make within each object. She adds words and recipes to the inside rims of mixing bowls and the outside of other pieces including measuring jugs and lidded jars.
All the recipes are handwritten by Alice's late grandmother which gives a narrative to her work and has become an inspiring story which many can relate to; with most people having old recipes passed down between generations. Ever since she had the idea to produce a range of kitchenware she wanted to add something special to it - her late grandmother’s own handwritten recipes seemed the perfect idea, adding a personal touch to an already unique, handmade collection.
