Avis's academic success (an honours degree in Design), her experience and a wide knowledge of a whole range of disciplines have been acknowledged across the world. Her outstanding success is not only in ceramics but with book illustration, jewellery, greetings cards and more.
      Meeting her brings the realisation that her passion for colour, form and texture, often combined with a great sense of fun, inject an irresistable personality into her work which takes it far beyond the ordinary. Avis’s creations at Dartington, both for production ware and with her ‘one-off’ pieces appeal not only aesthetically but emotionally as well.
      Her designs have a unique added warmth which make them both desirable and collectable internationally.
