Hilary Mayo creates delicate hand built vessels that display understated surface decoration inspired by landscapes. With a great many location based influences Hilary works from photographs, memory and observed detail.
Having practiced as a ceramic artist since 2001, Lowri predominantly creates decorative bone china tableware from her studio in Cardiff.
Lowri's early work was very much about documenting a way of life that was disappearing. She deliberately uses industrial processes to create her work, but on a very small scale. It is the same process that was used to make most of the ceramics that adorned her Nain’s home (grandmother).
Jill Fanshawe Kato’s enduring fascination with the natural world stems from her upbringing in the Devonshire countryside and her subsequent travels. Besides many shows in the UK, Jill has had 46 exhibitions of her ceramics in Japan including 11 solo shows at Keio Department Store Gallery, Shinjuku, Tokyo.
