I work from my studio in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, England, where I specialise in wheel-thrown pottery and porcelain bowls.
I also produce a selection of simple jewellery consisting of porcelain earrings and button brooches with my glassy ‘peacock’ glazes, as well as a range of beaded necklaces and bracelets made out of clay and porcelain displaying a variety of textures, and experimental stoneware glazes.
Availability of Work:
Button Brooches and Earrings are for sale at:
Debbie Bryan Studio & Shop, 18 St Mary's Gate, Lace Market, Nottingham, NG1 1PF. www.debbiebryan.co.uk
My porcelain bowls as well as button brooches and earrings can be seen at:
THE OLD HOUSE GALLERY, 13 Market Place, Oakham, Rutland, LE15 6DT www.oldhousegalleryrutland.co.uk
In my latest range I use the whitest porcelain available in order to show the glass-like qualities of the glaze to its best advantage. Vivid colours are obtained by using natural oxides in a highly alkaline glaze. The colours run together during the firing process creating an array of often unpredictable patterns.
I graduated from Loughborough University in 2007 and now have a studio at my home in Leicestershire.
