A little bit about me..
I wrote a moany article about my life as a freelancer.. read it here.
Or here .. (but it doesn’t have pictures here so is way less snazzy..)
I’m Rebecca Haughton, I am a ceramicist and freelance maker. I run my own small business – Dylan Ceramics, as well as making for two other businesses and teaching ceramics to children and adults.
I have worked freelance for coming up two years and I couldn’t be happier. Yes, there are hardships – choosing not to socialise because you need to pull a 7 day week – working through sickness because if you’re not there no-one else is going to pick up the slack. But moaning aside, everyday for me is different and that is exactly how I like it!
I studied textile research at Brighton University and since graduating found my medium in clay – I use my knowledge of textiles and sustainability in design to create contemporary ceramics.
At the moment I am working on an exciting project with a charity called Intoart – (Intoart facilitates artists with learning disabilities) I am in the midst of teaching an introduction to ceramics course – my job is to show them the world of clay – bliss! Do check out their website – there are wonderful things being created.
I am also working on an exciting new project that combines ceramics and silversmithing – the aim is to create a zero waste collection that uses only recycled or renewable materials. Check out my Instagram for these projects’ progress!
