Jo has just completed her MA at Bath Spa University, based at historic Corsham Court. I make sculptural forms from fragments of clay, each fragment containing the gesture of my hand. Visual influences include plaster ceilings, wrought iron gates, carved wood, which reference the natural & organic.
My larger forms are made from heavily grogged & coloured clays fired to 1260' & are suitable for outdoor display. I also make more delicate porcelain forms which work on a more domestic scale.
I incorporate colour into the clay body and then manipulate it when very soft: the sense of softness and touch remains apparent in the finished piece. I use a range of grogged clays and porcelain which are all fired to 1260' to make them weatherproof if displayed outdoors.
