Debbie Barber

My first experience of ceramics was as a teenager accompanying my Mum to an evening class at a local Further Education College. It was a hobby class and we had a go at most techniques. I naturally gravitated towards hand building. My fondest memories are spending time with Mum...

Claire Newman-Williams

Claire Newman-Williams is a British photographic artist. Whether crafting mixed media collages or photographic prints, Claire creates images that appear to have been pulled from the no-mans land that exists between imagination and reality. These images, often described as “filmic” and “haunting”, leave us wondering which world they inhabit. Are they created in our contemporary world, or are these vintage-looking images visual echoes plucked from another era?

Colour is my passion…and scarves are the canvases to allow me to enjoy the many ways I can express myself with the media of fabrics and dyes. I see my scarves as jewellery in textiles – and they are functional too!

Sally Dorrity

In my studio in Oxford I am constantly experimenting with different shapes, new glazes and glaze combinations. I am very drawn to movement, form and texture in my work, taking my inspiration from traditional classical forms as well as from the lines, tones and textures of nature. My ceramics and skills are constantly evolving and progressing as I pursue my fascination with clay and its many possibilities.

Gilly Whittington

I studied ceramics in Oxford UK before setting up my first workshop in 1993, when I also began teaching community education pottery classes in the Cotswold. I initially worked in earthenware with slip decoration, fired in an electric kiln. After a few years I moved to stoneware and succumbed to the temptations of firing in a gas kiln to explore stoneware reduction glazes using wood ash as a basic glaze ingredient.

Louise Mary

It has always given me great joy to make things, and when I first tried silversmithing, I very quickly felt a strong sense of connection to the craft. I love to use natural sources such as plants as inspiration for my designs and take great care over the detail of pieces. I have been an independent designer maker since graduation in 2005.

Tessa Tyldesley

Tessa Tyldesley has been designing jewellery for many years, she works with semi-precious stones and sterling silver. She studied fine art and this has a huge influence in the way she designs her jewellery. The starting point of a necklace is an array of stones on a table, just as a painter may have an array of colours on their palette. The final piece has gone through a process of mixing colour, texture and shape culminating in a well balanced and comfortable necklace.

Victoria Jardine

After teaching Ceramics for some years, I completed a Theory/ Practice MA in Applied Art and Visual Culture at the John Cass School of Art, London. For me this was an opportunity to examine the ‘language of things’ and, in particular, ceramic things. I established my own ceramics practice in 2001, and worked for thirteen years from Archway Ceramics, a group studio in a converted railway arch in East London. During this time I exhibited widely and, in Autumn 2003, was selected as a Professional Member of the Craft Potters’ Association. Alongside this I continued to fuel my interest in Applied Art Theory, teaching Museum Studies at London Metropolitan University, here examining the ways in which the meanings of objects can change as we move them through different environments... from home to museum or studio to gallery.

Ali Tomlin

All of my work is wheel thrown porcelain. I use it for its smooth, white surface and quality for making clean, elegant shapes as a perfect canvas for my colours and marks to create my range of contemporary ceramics. I work with the dry, chalky surface, applying a bold, but muted palette of stains, oxides and slips, splashing and sponging away areas, adding inlaid and sgraffito lines, aiming to create imperfect and unpredictable marks. Most decorating is carried out on the wheel to convey a feeling of movement and spontaneity.

David Brown

Colour and texture are vitally important to me in making my own personal interpretations of the amazing natural world. In the making of my work, I employ a whole range of techniques, including throwing, turning and altering, pressing, slabbing and coil building. I also impress, pierce and apply clay and sometimes add other materials to the clay.
