Art-Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: South West   

I am a ceramic artist inspired by the scenery of the beautiful coastline of Devon and Cornwall. Working from my studio in the grounds of Cockington Court near Torquay in Devon, I design and make a range of quirky sculptures of harbours, boats, fish and much more. Hand built using earthenware clay no two are exactly the same, so you can be sure of owning a truly unique piece of art. Each harbour takes several hours to make, paint and fire they are then finished with wooden masts, wire rigging and tiny colourful flags. Driftwood is also used as a base for some of the little boats, sailing on a sea of ceramic shells a colourful hand painted sail and tiny fish hanging on twine as if they have just been caught. I am always happy to take commissions or to personalise a special piece for you.

ARTBOXuk

category: Ceramics   

region: London   

I work in several media, primarily porcelain, but I also paint with acrylic on canvas. I have been experimenting and developing skills since I was 15, selling my work at exhibitions, craft fairs and privately through contacts. I taught Art & Design for 23 years.

I have a passion for butterflies and flowers, particularly butterflies, although I do many different works for commissions. I pride myself in producing handmade, original, quality detailed work. The pieces I make come from the heart, inspired from what I see around me and my garden. In addition to making, I use my new studio to teach small private tuition groups & workshops in a wide range of disciplines.

Beca Beeby

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Ceramics   Metalwork   

region: Wales   

Though primarily a metalworker (cast iron, forged steel, copper…) recent work development has resulted me to working with porcelain – a return to ceramics. My training has spanned across the ‘Craft’ and ‘Art’ disciplines, as does my work. Experimentation is key to the development of my work, which is inspired by the livestock & plant life found in my natural environment ~ particularly the tiny details; the curl of a new shoot; the structure of a seedpod; the hipbones of a dairy cow. My concerns over intensive farming and human impact on the environment also influence what I do.

Since graduating in 2011, I worked full-time for ceramicist Lisa Hammond. The time I spent working within a busy studio pottery gave me a real appreciation of the skill behind making functional pots. I now work from a pottery studio in rural Devon, Kigbeare Studios & Gallery, where I create my own range of slipware. […]

Bethan Myfanwy Jones

category: Ceramics   

region: South East   

Working in porcelain I strive to create simple and tactile forms. Drawing and mark making is an essential step in my making process and I constantly strive to recreate decorative techniques from paper and into a ceramic palette.

I use decorative techniques that are only partly controllable, studying the use of alternative tools for decoration. Using cotton as a tool, the decoration can only ever be guided, meaning that each twist of the thread will create an entirely unique pattern onto paper and clay. Using these delicate methods of decoration I create unique, tactile objects that entice the viewer to explore further and to interact with ceramic objects.

I am currently developing a range that uses imagery from the landscape that surrounds me, be it the 15th & 16th Century buildings, the local park or even the coastline.

Bev Milward

category: Ceramics   

region: South West   

Hand built porcelain landscapes and figures influenced by the environment, personal events and the nature of porcelain itself.
Shapes and forms of interest found in miniature landscapes, architecture, the circus and 17th Century British pottery are reinterpreted and combined in the clay to form a unique and distinctive style.
Imagery and themes are reworked and revisited but no piece is repeated. The last piece informs the next and has evolved as a continuous visual diary now spanning 11 years.
Each element or symbol has a personal history or a meaning and my maker’s mark, in the shape of a key, can be found somewhere on each piece.
The work is entirely hand built from porcelain, decorated with on glaze enamels, slips, lustres and more recently rare vintage lithographs.

Boop Design

category: Ceramics   Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

Boop Design is a range of porcelain ware all handmade in the Boop Design Studio in Somerset by Laura Pearcey and her small, highly skilled team of makers.  Laura’s unique illustrations are all hand drawn, and are quirky yet nostalgic.  They celebrate her love of found objects, and tell stories of the memories she has of growing up in Somerset, as well as the people, objects and songs that she loved:  Her Grandmother, her button box, her Victorian house, full of interesting objects, summer meadows, birds and butterflies, dandelion clocks, daisy chains, glass bottles, her dolls house, tea sets and nursery rhymes all were collected and treasured.

All Boop Design porcelain bottles are slip-cast in moulds made from some of Laura’s treasured bottle collection.  They are fired and glazed then Laura’s illustrations are applied as a ceramic transfer and fired into the glaze.
