Hilary Shields - contact



As a child, I was always making things, but I did not discover clay until my 20’s when adult education classes offered a welcome relief from a career in the pharmaceutical industry.

Ever since then I have been hooked. Starting a family offered the opportunity to pursue this further and in 2005 I completed parts I and II of the City and Guilds diploma course in Ceramics.

In the past I have enjoyed mostly hand-building and have experimented with smoke-fired and burnished ware. I like pattern and texture, take inspiration from nature and the sea and more recently have explored different methods of making decorative tiles.
