Kyra Mihailovic Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: London   

My work in high-fired stoneware and porcelain explores form, colour and pattern to create relatively small scale work with a strong visual impact that may provoke pleasure when viewed and used. My pieces are hand-thrown and turned on the wheel; texture, weight, balance, scale and shape are all important components of my work. I hand paint my work in ceramic colours and oxides before biscuit firing; most of my work is glazed internally in a second, higher firing with exteriors left unglazed. Everyday sensory experience, organic forms, travel and historical artifacts all inspire my ceramics.

region: South West   

I am a self taught artist. I am lucky enough to have a little wooden studio over looking the beautiful Cornish countryside. Inside I produce a range of quirky, fun and functional gifts! I specialise in hand painted English fine bone china, using traditional on glaze enamels which create bright glossy pieces to brighten the home. My pieces range in scale, including badges, mugs and cake stands, and my design subjects include animals, beach huts, flowers and other colourful everyday inspirations – my true work ethos is to create bright unique pieces that make people smile!

region: South West   

I am a ceramicist based in Plymouth, Devon with a studio space in Flameworks Creative Art Facility. I have a foundation degree from Rugby Art College, Fine Product BA Cons from Coventry University and Entrepreneurship in Creative Practices MA from Plymouth College of Art.

My work ranges from functional tableware to sculptural pieces and is handbuilt, slip cast or press moulded. I am particularly interested in surface and texture. I work with porcelain and paperclay,   which I make myself, this enables me to recycle 100% of unused clay and create texture using a variety of materials including polystyrene, fabric and natural materials.

My pieces are finished with lustre, on-glazes, oxides and fired to stoneware temperature or smoke fired. My smoke fired tableware is sealed with Liquid Quartz and is food, dishwasher and microwave safe.

I cast pieces that reference 18th and 19th Century British and European tableware. They are earthenware with coloured glazes, oxide transfers and hand painted with gold lustre. My work looks back to traditional tableware design but my line drawings bring a contemporary feel to each piece. My jugs and vases are made from moulds originally […]

Creating wild, but delicate, hand-built ceramics I use glazed and un-glazed porcelain to construct beaten, distorted forms with soft curves and interrupted contours. I like to engage physically with the raw material, pursuing a careful balance between fragility and bold strength, while the firing process enables the clay to develop a more undulating, independent sense […]

Mark Hilde

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Ceramics   Stone   

region: South West   

The influence of the coastal environment of West Wales, my childhood landscape, and the natural beauty of Dorset, where I now live, permeate the sculptural ceramics that I produce.
A background in precision engineering has trained me to work with a meticulous eye for tight tolerances, refined lines and defined angles.
My interests in nature and contemporary architecture have been incorporated to create pieces that contain the essence of natural forms in shapes that have clarity of line and beauty in simplicity.
All my work is handbuilt using slabs of stoneware clay and I construct each piece individually without the aid of moulds. The modelling and carving of the finer detail ensures each piece is unique. Following bisque firing to 1000°C, I apply my own glazes and finally fire to 1250°C.
I gained my BA Ceramics degree at West Wales School of the Arts in 2007.

Mary Cutchee

category: Ceramics   

region: South West   

Following training at art colleges in St Albans, Stoke-on-Trent and London I received a BA (Hons) in 1980, and have spent the last 38 years teaching and making ceramics in Ireland, Canada and the UK.

Now based in Devon with a workshop on the Dartington Estate, I use local ‘wild’ clay that I dig and prepare myself to make pots inspired by the Devon landscape. I use a combination of thrown, pinch, coil and slab techniques to give each pot a unique appearance and character as the different clays create serendipitous patterns on the surface of the pot. Though glazed inside, the tactile un-glazed outer surface of the pot offers the hand a deeper connection with the clay, and the land itself. Made by hand, my pots are meant to be held and touched as much as looked at. Prices start at £30 for small pots.
