has been making POTS and other Contemporary Ceramics for many years, and she is a Selected Member of the Craft Potters Association, UK.
She is mainly a hand-builder, making work using many different techniques, including coiling, pinching, and press molding, but she sometimes also uses the potter’s wheel to make a range of domestic items.
Directly below are images of some recent ceramics, in both stoneware and porcelain.
Examples of some of her Artwork can be seen HERE.
If you take a ball of clay, insert your thumb, and use your other fingers as support, you may ‘pinch’ out a wide variety of hollow forms.
Humans have been making pots like this for thousands of years. I’ve been doing this for ages too.
Rock Pot (Kurinuki)
I’ve only started using black clay very recently and think it suits these ‘rock inspired’ vessels very well.
The Precambrian geology near to my home in North Wales is very ancient and awe-inspiring.
I’m a late convert to porcelain but have begun to really love its qualities. I showed a selection of these pots for an Exhibition at the Contemporary Ceramics Centre, London, in 2017.
Stoneware (38cm by 7cm)
I’ve only made a few of these tall sinewy forms. The kiln I use these days is quite small, and every time I begin to make these they grow taller and taller. (They don’t actually ‘grow’ but look as if they could!).
Stoneware (36cm by 18cm)
This piece was made several years ago, but I like to think I’ll make some more some day, or at least work that relates to it. I used the same slip-decorating technique as in the large urns below.
Stoneware (41cm by 13cm)
This was also made a while back but I used dry glazes instead of slip on the surface. Scrafitto lines were carefully scratched through the unfired glaze and filled with a shiny one, for contrast.
