Who are we?

Thanks for visiting Dappled Sky.

We make. We are makers. We are making!

Together we use textiles and ceramics as main materials utilising our skills in the ceramics industry, fashion theatre art and craft backgrounds.

We live to make – with Porcelain, earthenware, denim, cottons, linen, found cloths and found interesting objects – mixing old and new- mixing drawing on paper and ipad, painting on paper wood canvas, stitching on cloth and paper together with making jewellery and home ware items all from that lovely gooey stuff called clay.

We take inspiration from our passions- the beauty of nature, the stories of childhood, the dark wonder and magical mystery, the freedom of being in the great outdoors- either cycling, walking, breathing in those big open spaces and we live, the huddled closeness of cosy dark winter nights and the pleasure of being parents to a funny little fluff ball – our gorgeous cat.

Born and raised in Stoke on Trent, the home of the world famous Potteries. We are surrounded by countryside, nestled on the edge of the Peak District.

This is us …

  1. just came across your blog via Simply Staffordshire – looks lovely and brought this to mind:

    Pied Beauty
    Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–89)

    GLORY be to God for dappled things—
    For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;
    For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;
    Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches’ wings;
    Landscape plotted and pieced—fold, fallow, and plough;
    And áll trádes, their gear and tackle and trim.
    All things counter, original, spare, strange;
    Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?)
    With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim;
    He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change:
    Praise him.


    1. How beautiful – thank you so much for the kind words.
      Thank you also for letting me know that Simply Staffordshire has happened upon Dappled Sky – that’s great.
      Have a lovely day ‘M North’
