The next exhibition at Craftco, Southwold is Ann Lee (painted, drawn and stencilled ceramics) and Heather Hodgson (landscape collages) from 4th to 29th September. The private view is on Saturday 7th September from 2pm to 4pm.
Ann Lee: “I love to explore the making properties of clay. The work I will show is mainly hand built, although I also throw pots when I feel the need. I make things because I enjoy it, so therefore if I feel like using a fine porcelain, or alternatively a course black clay I will do so keeping an open mind about the clay’s unique qualities and possibilities.
After the hand making process I am faced with how to complete the pot. To draw together the form, the pots possible function, colour and look. Recently I have tried to reduce my palette to specific elements in order to clarify the essential character and presence of my pots. I am aiming for strong sculptural ceramics. “
