Living by the Fowey River has inspired me to make a collection of traditional and sculptural ceramics that I hope evokes the textures, the changing nature of the water and the places of interest on this beautiful river.
All the pieces in this exhibition are essentially vessels, the traditional potter’s form, in many cases here opened out to plates to show the colours and decoration derived from local materials. The sculptural forms evoke the hard physical aspects of the shoreline.
Central to my ceramic work at Westcliff Pottery is the use of locally found materials for decoration and texture and in this exhibition it is appropriate that all the clays, beach sand and ash have been gathered in or near the Fowey River.
