Diane Griffin

category: Ceramics   Jewellery and Silverware   

region: East Midlands   

After discovering a love for clay at an early age, I went on to study Ceramics at degree level and have been working with ceramics ever since. When designing a new piece I begin with the form and often look at sculptures for inspiration.  Anish Kapoor, Jim Partridge, Andy Goldsworthy and Gordon Baldwin are just a few of that artists that I enjoy and who continue to inspire my own sculptural forms.

I use a combination of techniques to create my pieces. My vases are slip cast then individual scrolls are rolled and applied creating a decorative and practical focus for each piece. I use white earthenware clay fired to 1150ºC which achieves a clean white finish allowing a crisp contrast to the bright colours on the insides of the scrolls.

I am currently working on pieces that translate many of the techniques that I have developed over the years for my sculptures into pieces that can more readily be incorporated into the home and I also have a collection of ceramic jewellery.

I’ve been making sculptural ceramic vessels and handmade tiles for over fifteen years and work in my studio at home overlooking the garden in the beautiful Peak District National Park.

region: Wales   

I am inspired by the form of the classic ceramics from the 20th and 21st century. The modernist and cubist movements have been my points of reference, using their concept of a well designed form with facets and angles as inspiration. It is the marriage of form and function that intrigues me and the distortion […]

Gemma Wightman Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: London   

Gemma Wightman makes an exciting range of hand thrown porcelain tableware. Exploring the wonders of porcelain, she manipulates forms so that they look as fresh as when they were first created on the potter’s wheel.
Each piece entices you to touch it with their deep thrown lines and sumptuous curves. Gemma takes great pleasure in knowing that her pieces are an enjoyment to those that use them.
Gemma formulates her own glazes in order to produce the subtle variations in tone of both the shiny turquoise and satin cream glazes. Before the final firing the pieces are individually dipped in the glaze.
Gemma trained in the early 2000s, firstly at the Surrey Institute of Art & Design in Farnham and then on the Bath Spa University Ceramics degree course under the esteemed tutorage of Felicity Aylieff and Takeshi Yasuda.
