Jean Cunion

category: Ceramics   

region: Yorkshire   

I handbuild ceramic stylised birds in the form of either a small vessel or, for larger birds, a jug. I use stoneware clay and decorate with underglaze colours, slip and glazes. My inspiration comes from the birds of the moors, coast and countryside of North Yorkshire and in my garden.

address: Whitby, N Yorks.


Jennie McCall

category: Ceramics   

region: East Midlands   

I grew up in the beautiful Scottish Borders where the local industry was textiles. Many of my artistic influences come from all aspects of this industry and from the rich source of folklore and nature.

Working primarily in ceramics I create my homeware and figurative work in stoneware and more recently have developed a range of work in parian. All of the ceramic decals are from my own collection. These are sourced from daily walks and also from pressed flowers and scraps which I occasionally find to my delight in some of my favourite old childhood books.

I am so fortunate to work in a lovely studio placed perfectly in my garden overlooking the fields and hills of the Welland valley in Leicestershire.

The aesthetic and design of manufactured metal tins hasn’t changed for over 200 years. Fascinated by this curious fact, Jessica began to design and make ceramic pieces inspired by the characteristics and forms of metal tins through vitrified porcelain. A love for both cooking and eating has naturally influenced Jessica’s functional response within her designs. […]

I design and produce a series of contemporary ceramic objects that explore functionality. Blurring the boundaries between the usable and the purely decorative, with a minimal aesthetic and considered and refined colour palette. Fascinated by process, I explore the technique of layered slipcasting, to create unique pieces and both individual pieces and collections of curated […]

Julie Vernon Mosaics

category: Ceramics   Glass   Mosaics   Stone   

region: Midlands   

I produce vibrant contemporary wall hung mosaics working with a mixture of materials from vitreous glass and ceramic through to natural marble and slate. I also like to incorporate individual pieces of vintage porcelain or worn down ceramic found washed ashore British beaches to give my work a greater depth, with each fragment holding a hidden history or journey of its own.
I produce mosaic panels, commissioned house numbers and personalised wedding hearts and am also showing my work in exhibitions.

Juliette Purdy

region: South East   

I work in ceramics, focusing on the idiosyncrasy of the human personality – exploring the challenge of penetrating outward appearances. I hope my work ignites a spark of recognition and has a playfulness; a sense of belonging to both past and present. Early British figurative pottery such as Staffordshire and Royal Doulton are inspirational but, to me, they have a perfection that’s unreal. An artist’s handmade piece reveals the figure’s individuality, making it accessible, expressing humanity and vulnerability.
I use porcelain paper-clay and vintage found objects. When fired to stoneware, porcelain can often move about serendipitously, shrinking up to 15%. The result is snow-white clay, which I juxtapose with colourful decals, and a transparent stoneware glaze, referencing the Figure’s prominent history.

Since leaving college in 1998 I have been working solely with hand built porcelain- creating semi functional pieces. My work addresses the boundaries between function and decoration. I look at objects that are used on a daily basis; like the form of a jug and create pieces that move away from function and are more […]

KAH Ceramics

region: North West   

I am a contemporary studio potter. My inspiration is taken from the beautiful Cumbrian landscapes in which I live. I use a range of techniques such as raku, slab built pots and slip casting. I use plants picked from my garden to print into the clay along with using textured rollers and the sgraffito technique to hand draw into my work. My aim is to bring the beauty of nature into the home and garden. I practise with many different clays and recently, I have created my own paper clay recipe to create delicate pieces for the home.
