Educated at Bristol Polytechnic, she builds pieces that look different from every angle and are full of movement with twists, curves and spirals which remind nature’s shapes but have a very modern and contemporary feel at the same time.

Tina mixes an oxide into the clay to give it a buff color, she then constructs the pot using coils of the clay. Once fired, the piece is hand burnished to give the the pot a silk-like sheen. I must be wonderful to hold one of her pieces in your hands with your eyes closed!

At the ceramics atelier we sometimes discuss whether a piece has more of an artistic value if it’s done with a functional use or thought as a decorative object. I believe both possibilities are very well balanced here. G, x
