Freyja has started her journey into Ceramics after coming from a background in Textile Print Design graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2021. After gaining experience within the print sector, working for designers such as Zandra Rhodes, she wanted to explore other pathways of design.
Born and raised in Edinburgh and living in London for the past few years, Freyja has always been influenced by the life of cities. Exploring the marriage of old historical aspects of architecture with new and modern developments into our ever-growing cities. Her interest in architecture stems from taking walks through the city of London, discovering old classical buildings, brutalist creations and high-tech features all within a short distance walk from each other. This led her to create work that is a nod to the past and the present, with a graphic style and finish, combining, to some, the undiscerning elements of a city.
Freyja was the recipient of the Charlotte Fraser Award which allowed her to develop and create work freely. She now looks forward to joining a studio to develop her practice within ceramics, creating her designs into sculptural functional ware.
