Stylish, contemporary porcelain Wall Pieces and bowls depicting strikingly beautiful areas of the East Riding of Yorkshire.
I make contemporary porcelain pieces for the home - candlesticks, vases
Porcelain is a fabulous medium - sensuously smooth to throw and with a
density that allows for fine turning of graceful curves. My work is
characterised by simple forms and pared back colour which together
provide a foil for my love of richly textured surfaces. The intricate
patterning on natural forms such as pollen and sea urchins provide
inspiration for decoration. The pieces are co-ordinated to work well in
groups of different sizes and shapes or in a bold linear arrangement of
a single design.
Jill has written an interesting article entitled Origin - a Journey which I think will inspire those setting out on a similar journey today.
