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.
Isabella's work is mainly thrown stoneware and porcelain, glazed with lead-free glazes. For her flowers she uses the technique of majolica, where glaze is applied on raw glaze with single bold brush strokes. She enjoys making functional everyday tableware, as well as decorative pieces that blur the boundary between the useful and the beautiful.
