Moor and Veil tailed swimming gold fish – Reserved for Richard

£65.00

The water colours and illustrations I create are an extension of my detailed Sgraffito pottery.

Ideas often bounce between the two forms of creative expression and one could not exist with out the other. I enjoy the combination of soft colour and a hard pen line which make my drawings very individual and instantly recognizable.

There are a great many illustrators that I have found to be inspirational but the main three are Brian Froud with The Land Of Froud, Simon Bisley for his amazing drawings in the graphic novels The Horned God and Maurice Sendak with his beautiful book of Where The Wild Things Are.

As a small girl I loved to draw and was encouraged to develop this talent.Growing up in central London had a massive impact on my life and I used my imagination, to draw the animals, plants and other worlds the grey city could not offer but I longed to see. Discovering the creative possibilities of clay sparked emotions of excitement which I still feel today.Every creation has a magical quality combining thrown forms with my unique drawings, vibrant use of colour and Sgraffito decoration. I see each piece as if it were a window into a secret world inhabited by beautiful and colourful creatures. My designs and decoration are ever changing and I own numerous sketch books full of drawings still waiting to come to life. Using the technique of sgraffito allows me to work from paper to pot before submitting work to the magic of the kiln. The intricate decoration which covers each form is meticulously cut away freehand, this is built up over time, taking many days and hours until finally complete. This unique word translated from Italian means ‘to scratch away’ and has been used by many ancient cultures to decorate buildings, paintings and pottery. Artisans and craftsmen through time have used and explored the possibilities of this beautiful process and by embracing this technique I feel I am producing some truly unique pieces of decorative work. My inspiration comes from the natural world as well as The Arts and Crafts Movement and Art Nouveau. Other influences have been artists such as Gustav Kilmt and Alberto Giacometti, as well as the works of such potters as Elizabeth Fritsch and Mary Wondrausch. For me, art and clay work are the two halves of myself, with one not being able to exist without the other.
