I came to pottery following a career as a dancer then teacher of dance and exercise. I found that dance and pottery had many similarities as both have difficult techniques to master and take a lot of practice, so practicing throwing a pot came quite naturally to me. I began with a weekly pottery course, […]

Art-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.

Ashley James Design

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Ceramics   

region: South East   

I am a ceramic artist living and working in Hampshire.

My work is influenced by an interest in the natural world; a love of farm life and the surrounding countryside. I strive to capture something quirky and unique in each piece I create and I hope my work captures my personality. It’s important to me that each piece tells its own narrative. Working in stoneware I use natural oxides, underglaze stains and polymers on the clay surface, occasionally embellished with galvanised steel wire for a contemporary feel. My ceramic work is priced from £60-£500.

My work has been shown at Southampton Art Gallery, St Barbe Museum & Art Gallery, Mottisfont, (National Trust), Sherfield School and at The Grange, Northington (English Heritage).

I work in naked raku. The pots, thrown from a porcelain/T material mix are burnished and then coated with a resist slip before being glazed. Once they are fired and put into a sawdust reduction the glaze starts to craze and then the pots are cooled quickly so that the glaze falls off like eggshell, leaving a silky white surface with smokey grey crackle marks and spots. I love the random effects.

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.
