I write with clay, exploring relationships with landscape.
Our earliest records were inscribed clay tablets, and I sense a continuity in using clay as a medium for script.
I like the shapes and shadows created by 3 dimensional slip-trailed text. Shadows move with the light, echoing our hazy, shifting memories of experiences. Words come off the page and take form.
I am a member of Ceramic Art Whitway, along with Sally Courage & Moya Tosh. We host a permanent exhibition space housed within a working studio. Our aim is to promote the work of local ceramicists and studio potters in a relaxed environment.
We can also host small groups for talks by the artists about their practice.
We plan to offer viewings by appointment as soon as the regulations allow.
During May, we are also showing the work of local Studio Potter Kevin Akhurst, whose tactile pots have unique glazed surfaces, fired in his wood kiln. If you would like to meet him, Kevin will be present in the Studio on Tuesday, May 18th 2021.
A link to our eventbrite booking system is now available - see below.
We are limiting admission to 4 people per 40 minute session to allow social distancing.
In the meantime, please do look at our series of 'Potters talk...' videos on youtube channel Ceramic Art Whitway, where we discuss our inspirations, surface treatments and processes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGqbKb6tilc and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U48drzCzHxo&t=9s. Further videos will be available during 2021.
