An anthropologist by training (LSE), Isabella has always enjoyed making things and when she encountered ceramics in 2007 it was love at first touch. She learned about pottery at London's City Lit, and with North London potter Ricky Grimes. She set up her home studio in 2013 and in 2017 moved into a pottery studio in Wood Green.
Her work is inspired by the tradition of British Studio Pottery. In her choice of forms and textures she values simplicity and spontaneity and allows the work to develop organically. Each piece is hand thrown and glazed with traditional, lead-free glazes; each is unique and functional.
