Rose Wallace

Rose studied at Buckinghamshire New University under the tutorship of Prof. Neil Brownsword and Kevin Millward attaining a first class BA(Hons) in 2008 and became a selected member of the Craft Potters Association in 2010. She works from her studio in East Oxford and teaches for Abingdon & Witney College.

The starting point for Rose’s work is original discarded objects. She believes the inherent value held within the transience of our collective domestic ephemera has a story to tell. She begins with making a plaster mould from the original object from which she press-moulds a series of malleable pieces. Each piece of work can have up to fifty different elements, bonded at the leather-hard stage. The pieces are finished with earthenware glazes developed from traditional Staffordshire lead glazes.

Rose has work in the permanent collections of the Art Gallery and Museum in Leamington Spa, The Grimmerhus Museum in Denmark, The International Ceramics Research Centre in Denmark, Cannon Hall Museum in Barnsley, and the Ken Stradling Study Collection in Bristol.
