Imogen Wildin - Imwi Pottery and Prints
My business sells ceramic pots/dishes/mugs that have sculpted noses with piercings. The nose pots will be finished in different coloured glazes with jewellery to represent a nose piercing.

Alongside my focus of pottery, I want my shop to include other art I make such as prints and photography.
