Prue trained as a painter, but preferred the more earth-bound activity of making objects for use. Her work celebrates friendship and the sharing simple pleasures that is implied by large dishes for food.
After art-school she spent twenty years dealing in 18th and 19th century drawings. In 1990 she returned to studying, for a 3-year ceramics course, and in 1996 set up her present studio, which she shares with Regina Heinz.
The cast of characters in the designs occupy "flat land", the limited perspective working with the two dimensions of the surface, while sometimes elements of the design deliberately challenge the form of the dish. Some are inscribed, the lettering being an integral part of the design in the same way that the words are integral to a song.
The dishes are press-moulded earthenware, decorated with slips and glazed with food-safe honey glaze. They are dish-washer proof and gently oven proof.
