I am Caroline, though generally known as Cazz. I am a contemporary crafts person specialising in ceramics. All my work is handmade by myself from my workshop in Carlisle, Cumbria.
I have always been a crafty-bod. I studied Contemporary Applied Arts at both Degree and Masters level at Cumbria Institute of the Arts, graduating my Masters in 2006. Since then I have always worked within the ceramics world, teaching and demonstrating but most importantly, setting up my own handmade ceramics business. I love what I do and I do what I love!
I am inspired by being ‘in-and-out’ of the garden. My work is designed to be fun and often functional, with a quirky style and vintage feel. I love anything ‘weird’ and ‘offbeat’. I am a very keen gardener and a collector of ‘stuff and things’!
I make ranges of work for inside the home and outside in the garden. I combine a range of materials, techniques and processes to create the pieces. Textured papers, my Grandma’s old buttons, vintage-inspired decal transfers and my illustrations are lovingly combined to create my pieces. Each piece being slightly different from the next
I also undertake commissions for bespoke pieces and occasions. Do feel free to get in touch, I do love a chin-wag! You can often find me at various shows, exhibitions and events selling my wares, I also supply many shops, galleries, garden centres and other quirky places throughout the Uk and Ireland.
I hope you enjoy my work,
