Lisa Hammond MBE, a pioneer of soda-glaze firing, combines strong uncomplicated forms with highly tactile surfaces.
Alongside her series of thrown functional ware, this influential London potter explores a range of individual wheel-thrown vessels – bowls, bottles and jars that are decorated with brush marks and poured slips and glazes, taking on an intriguing depth when fired. The finished works suggest the softness of clay and celebrate a handcrafted quality.
Don’t miss this chance to admire Lisa’s recent body of work, through which she primarily explores a range of bottle and jar forms, each bearing individual and playful surface decoration.
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.
