With a background in horticulture, Bekky has always enjoyed getting her hands in the earth. In her studio, she merges her passion for botany with her love of designing and making.

 

At the heart of her creative concept is The Biophilia Effect, which relates to our primal instinct for a connection with the natural world, a subject she studies in depth during her recent MA. The intention of her ceramic work is to reflect on the psychology of this human urge for a closeness with the wilderness. 

Her studio is nestled on a farm in the Sussex countryside, surrounded by rolling hills and woodlands. Her daily interactions with her surrounding environment provide a claming flow of inspiration, which she mindfully channels into her creative practice. She aims to convey this in her sculptural artwork and, more recently, in the newly designed Plant Pods and the Serenity Vessels series.

 

Through her work, she encourages us to share our living and working spaces with Biophilic Art.
