Sam Walker

Sam discovered a passion for art when she was a teenager.  She excelled in her Art A Level, but her love for animals, at first, led her to work with horses.  Through a chance encounter she was introduced to pottery and began lessons.
Sam quickly developed her talent and began working on and selling her own hand built ceramic work.  She is particularly fond of mug making and surface pattern design.
