Alice Shields is a Bristol based ceramic designer who creates a range of bold home wares, jewellery and gifts. Specialising in surface decoration, Alice hand applies her own illustrated decal drawings onto each item and sgraffitos into each of her porcelain jewellery range pieces.
Alice prides herself on creating a range which has functionality yet is decorative and beautiful at the same time. Humour plays a key role in the narrative of her work, creating pieces which reflect the characteristics of being British. Her illustrations reflect her love of wildlife and favourite pastimes.
Alice graduated from Bath Spa University in 2008 having spent three brilliant years playing with clay on the BA Ceramic design course. She set up her small business in late 2011 and moved to Bristol in 2012. She works from Maze Studios - a little haven of potters and kilns. When she’s not slapping clay around, she may be drawing at home, selling at fairs or eating hobnobs somewhere.
