Christine was born in Bristol and is the daughter of painters Paul Feiler and June Miles. She studied at Bath Academy of Art and Cardiff Art College before training as a teacher.

After moving to Oxford she taught ceramics and settled in Penzance in 1994, where she lives today.

Formed from white stoneware that’s ideal for delicate handling and the creation of a fine finish, Christine’s pots are thrown on the wheel, with segments being joined at the ‘leather hard’ stage. High firing at 1,260 degrees then fuses the colours and shape into a durable, singular form.

Often featuring rhythmic stripes or ripples of colour and using subtle or deep bold tones, the resulting ceramic works can be commanding and voluminous or elegant and spare.
