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.

Brittany Delany Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: North West   

I explore the translucent quality and fragile effects that can be produced through the use of porcelain. Taking shape and form as a starting point I create functional vessels and tableware.

I work in two different ways, slip casting and slab building. With both methods the making processes are exaggerated and become a main focus of the design.

I enjoy combining porcelain with other materials such as leather and metal creating handles and intricate stitching. I also work with frosty coloured glazes producing tactile surfaces.

Chris Barnes

category: Ceramics   

region: North West   

Chris Barnes makes his pottery at his studios in Cumbria and Argyll. The Stoneware comprising a range of bowls, plates, mugs, jugs, vases etc. is thrown using a kickwheel and completed with various high fired glazes. He formulates his own glazes using a variety of minerals to produce a rich colour response combined with a very durable surface. Each of the pots is unique as a result of the entire making process. First the clay is hand thrown on the wheel or slabbed to produce the forms. After the first firing the glaze is applied by hand. Finally careful control of the kiln atmosphere during the second firing brings out the character of the ware, its colours and durable finish.

Claire Baker Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: South West   

Claire Baker is a ceramicist working in St Thomas Stoneware and paper clay. Her inspirations are drawn from the darker side of Victorian life, social history, theatre and circus and Grimm’s Fairy Tales.

An incredible amount of work goes into each piece. They are fired 5 times, layered with slips, glazes, decals and gold lustres to produce a distinctive patina. Teaspoons are reformed to use as handles for teacups and other mixed media is incorporated – usually vintage and metalware.

Consuelo Radclyffe

category: Ceramics   

region: London   

I am a ceramic artist, specialising in 3-D sculptures but also making quirky functional objects such as vases, plates etc. Childhood memories are my main inspiration. My figures are often described as dark, joyful and weird and are made from clay, wire, and clothes designed uniquely for them. I also add fabric, papers, bits of wire, or anything that supplements the composition, stimulating further interpretation.

Deirdre McGuirk

category: Ceramics   

region: Herefordshire   

Deirdre McGuirk is a ceramic artist based in Hertfordshire.

I use porcelain to make wheel thrown and hand-built ceramics; I love the silky smoothness of porcelain and the white canvas it provides for decoration. Once glazed it has a luminosity that seems to be unique to this clay. It is a challenging material to throw, but I enjoy the challenge and I think the results are worth it.

Forms have proportion and simplicity, but have a function. I enjoy food and cooking and want my ceramics to be useful in everyday life, enhancing the food they hold or flowers that they display rather than dominating. I make all my own glazes from raw materials, adding oxides in different concentrations to allow variations of similar colour. I prefer muted colours, particularly greens, blues and greys with subtle variations. I use both glossy and matt glazes, which I sometimes layer and overlap to create depth of colour and variation of texture on the same piece.
