Rose believes that functional items can also be beautiful, she intends for her ceramics to be used every day and not just to be decorative. Her creations are also inspired by the love of hosting and cooking, wanting to create ceramics that bring character to serving food and spending time with friends and family.

‚ÄčRose graduated from the University of the Arts London, in Surface Design in 2015. After her degree she moved back home to Bristol, setting up her own ceramic studio called Wood Studio after meeting a retired potter who wanted to sell their equipment.
