Ruthanne Tudball and Jeremy Steward each have longstanding careers in ceramics creating work that feels organic and holds an earthy authenticity. Jeremy wood fires and salt glazes his work while Ruthanne is renowned for her soda glaze firing, both resulting in rich, layered surfaces.
Working from the renowned Wobage workshop in rural Herefordshire, Jeremy Steward is inspired by the soft fluidity of the materials themselves — clay on the wheel, slip and raw glaze. His work is often decorated by using wooden roulettes and stamps to impress deeply textured patterns into the freshly thrown forms.
Based in Norfolk, Ruthanne Tudball has welcomed the way that sketching, and life drawing in particular, has trained her eye, helping to develop the sense of form she translates into her ceramic art. Ruthanne’s functional pieces are assembled and manipulated while wet, capturing the soft organic quality of clay.
Don’t miss the chance to collect a piece from this beautiful collection of new works by two highly influential makers.
South Coast based Carolyn Genders is an internationally renowned ceramic artist, author and educator, recognized for her unique use of colour and surface. This newest body of work from Carolyn offers a bright and instinctive collection which is the direct response to a three month residency in France. Each piece denotes a new terrain and a time of joyous expression of colour and emotion through paint and brush, now extended into ceramic forms.
Jill Fanshawe Kato’s ceramic forms are adorned with her distinctive imagery; of birds, animals, plants and small creatures, such as grasshoppers and shrimps. Meanwhile, Susan O’Byrne’s creatures are vehicles for the expression, distillation and embodiment of fundamental aspects of our humanity.
As the festive season approaches, we are thrilled to present an inspiring selection of hand-picked and carefully curated works by many of our respected CPA members.
