Paper, Paint & Clay Studio

category: Ceramics   Mixed Media & Recycled   Paper   

region: North West   

I make wall sculptures out of drift wood branches, ceramic bowls and platters wrapped in papier-mâché and ceramic collages that hint at a story. I love combining different textures to create very tactile pieces. My work is influenced by the weatherworn surfaces of the Manx landscape, the coastline, and my love of the sea, then wrapped with papier-mâché. The papier-mâché is a wrapping of love! It’s a memory of my sister and I, who with great care and glee unwrapped the Christmas decorations. These wonderful jewels had been so carefully folded in old newspaper ‘skins’, now my papier-mâché skins! My repeatedly worked surfaces of clay are under constant revision, referencing the endless remaking of the shoreline, then decorated with oxides, under glazes, glazes and gold lustre.

Penny Hunt, velvet & bracken

category: Ceramics   

region: Yorkshire   

I completed a fine art degree and MA at Manchester Metropolitan University over twenty years ago and have been teaching art while painting and making since then. I recently left teaching and moved to the Yorkshire Dales, where I am surrounded by a landscape that constantly inspires me. The changing light on fells and moorland catches my painter’s eyes and I find myself increasingly fascinated by the people and animals that inhabit and visit the area, the climbers, fell runners and cyclists who make use of the land. All ceramics are hand built and are glazed and fired multiple times to give the layered more painterly effect.

I first started working with clay three years ago and I am self-taught; I love the beauty and clarity of porcelain and I enjoy the freedom of hand-building my pieces one by one and seeing their shapes appear. I add gold and platinum lustres at the final firing stage, filling my work with depth, optimism […]

Penny Spooner Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: South East   

Working in porcelain from my studio in Hampshire I produce pieces both on the wheel and with hand building techniques. My current wheel-thrown work is functional tableware suitable for everyday use, decorated inside with my speckled glazes and finished outside with a hand drawn daisy chain motif.

My hand built work, including vases & tea lights, is more decorative with a variety of finishes – printing of pattern & words, simple pencil drawing & slip decoration.

Much of my work is inspired by a childhood punctuated with visits for ‘Tea’ with my Grandmother, everything looking as good as it tasted and always beautifully presented. I originally learnt my craft at evening classes in my local college, moved on to studying a couple of days a week with my tutor, finally moving in to my own studio during 2008.

I began to make pots at school. The art room, and the art teacher, provided a quiet calm space, which became an oasis of contrast to the noise and chaos of boarding school life. I went to Harrow Art School in the early 1980s, chosen mostly because it had a crèche, and found a course […]

Rachel Codd

category: Ceramics   Jewellery & Silverware   

region: Wales   

Rachel Codd is inspired by classical poems and fairy tales, creating tactile and wearable porcelain jewellery with a deeper meaning and story to each and every piece. Passionate about drawing a little bit of fantasy from our classical inspirations and into each piece through the ornate detail and unusual nature of this practice.

Working with porcelain to create a rich palette whilst still obtaining vivid detail. Clear glazed for tactile functional pieces, and finished with a dash of gold lustre; that holds a subtle hint of more traditional jewellery within a fresh creative process. Our jewellery is the result of a desire to dedicatedly hand-made pieces that form a tactile narrative, adding a little more beauty into the world and inviting us to not just view it but also wear it and become a part of it.

Rose Dickinson

category: Ceramics   

region: South East   

Since graduating in 1972 I have spent my working life teaching and making ceramics. I make a range of handbuilt work inspired by my love of nature and the flora and fauna of the North Kent Marshes where I live.

I use the structures and textures found in natural forms juxtaposed with textures from found objects to produce an unusual range of work which is both decorative and functional. I use fine porcelain clays to make large bowls, vases, mugs, brooches and much more, all complementing one another.

Ruth Harrison Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: South West   

My ceramics consist of slip cast shapes with disks or petal shapes that are cut from slabs of porcelain using icing plunger cutters or cookie cutters. These pieces are then sponged, scored and attached to the vessel using slip. Sometimes I add colour in the form of a glaze stain to the porcelain. Once fully dry they are fired twice in a kiln and glazed clear on the inside. I graduated from Plymouth College of Art with a BA Hons in Ceramics: my approach has its roots in a 2 week project called ‘Repeat Forms’ there, during which I became mesmerised by the idea of taking one shape and multiplying it around a shape to create a finished piece.

Sally Mareike Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: South West   

My work and passion is to create nature inspired, stoneware, rustic ceramics, using slab and coil building techniques. They often have contrasting textures and are coloured using a variety of oxides and glazes and fired in my electric kiln. My most popular pieces are from my Bee Hive, Seaside and Autumn Leaf collections, which range from £4 for a tiny ornament to £600 for a sculptural water feature.

I love making all my work, as it gives me a sense of peace, tranquility and grounding as I connect with the clay. Teaching hand-building classes and workshops, however, brings lively, social fun, skill sharing, and a real joy when seeing student’s reactions to the amazing work that they create.

Sally Reilly

category: Ceramics   

region: South East   

My work is a celebration of the everyday experience of eating and drinking, and of private and shared moments. My love of cooking and good food is central to my work. I design and throw ranges of tableware for everyday use, small collections of pots for more ceremonial moments and individual pieces.

I was born in Ireland but trained in Paris in an Anglo/Japanese tradition. This early influence is evident in my work but I am also interested in the pure shapes of Modernism. Alongside my work in series I continue to experiment with form and technique, sometimes adding non-ceramic elements. Most pieces are high fired stoneware with classic oriental glazes but I also use brightly coloured slips on earthenware and stoneware under a transparent glaze.

My inspiration comes from my love of pattern and colour, as well as hints to textile construction. Though I did not go through any formal training, I have spent a long time experimenting with techniques best suited to applying pattern to the surfaces of my pieces. My work is made from flat slabs of clay. […]

Samantha Robinson

category: Ceramics   

region: East Midlands   

Samantha Robinson works with a subtle combination of porcelain, metals and textiles. Using the porcelain’s purity as a base and inspiration from textures, tags and the ‘everyday ordinary’, Samantha adds a subtle stitch, a hint of colour or a glint of metal, drawing our attention to what is often overlooked.

The processes involved are slip casting, hand building, stitch and embossing. This blend of techniques and materials provides a tactile and intriguing range of jewellery and interior pieces. Samantha is an accomplished international designer maker and tutor, working on freelance projects that include producing work for exhibitions, retail outlets, commissions and delivering workshops.

Sarah Villeneau Ceramics

category: Ceramics   Mixed Media & Recycled   

region: Yorkshire   

Inspired by nature, I try to capture the essence of the organic in my work. I create sculptural vessel forms and abstract sculptures. The former capture the essence of form and movement with satin matt glaze surfaces; the sculpture is more visceral, formless and textured, with the occasional inclusion of “alien” objects – nails, pre-fired ceramics etc. Having followed a number of art courses over my adult life, the most formative was the MA in Studio Ceramics completed in 2014. This marked a turning point in the direction of my work alongside much more honed technical skills in making and glazing. Vessel-based work is slabbuilt over a former with pinched additions; the sculpture is created by pummelling and pinching textured clay slabs to form abstract shapes which are then added to.

Sheena Spacey Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: South West   

My works are primarily hand built ceramics, and are inspired from storybooks, wanderings, small interesting tales and nature. Always following my heart, I love seeing things in a simple way, inspired by folk art and fables. I interpret my imaginary scenes into clay, frequently using either porcelain or porcelain paperclay into little narrative scenes on hilltops (some with hidden secret additions inside), folkstyle figures using leaves and foliage as decoration and sometimes with some mixed media additions, and hand made ceramic buttons and decorative hearts. Items range in scale from hand made ceramic buttons up to individual narrative sculptural pieces.
