First trained as a painter at Chelsea School of Art, she took up pottery and now works full time with translucent porcelain.

In 1992 she spent three formative months in Japan working in the studio of Ryoji Koie and since then has become world famous for her ceramic light fittings exhibiting widely at locations from Oxford’s Pitt Rivers Museum to The Conran Shop in London.

There are 15 light sculptures at Galerie Besson priced from £350 to £15,000, and the translucent porcelain light illustrated: Reed Form, 17in (43cm) high, which was made this year, is at the lower end of the price scale.
