Since being a small girl I have loved to draw and was encouraged to develop this talent through my childhood. My excitement for the magical possibilities of clay began at Art College and these feelings have never faded.
The Making Process
Each form I create is wheel thrown using a white stoneware clay, turned and then decorated with coloured slips which I have developed my self. Every piece is drawn onto and cut away freehand using the technique of Sgraffito at the leather hard stage of drying.
Whilst working on my decoration I listen to music as this helps me to focus and once my headphones are on I am lost in my own world. Particular favourites being, Philip Glass, Vangelis, John Williams and John Barry. Sight and sound are an extremely creative combination and extricably linked for me.
All pieces have a bisque and then a glost firing of 1180 degrees centigrade in an electric kiln.
The intricate decoration which covers each form is meticulously cut away freehand using the technique of Sgraffito and this is built up over time, taking many days and hours of work until Tiffany feels it’s finally complete. Once the coloured slips have been applied the cutting away and drawing onto her work can only be done once the clay is at the perfect leather hard stage of the drying process.
