Colour in Clay
My work explores combining the traditional Japanese craft of Nerikomi with British contemporary ceramics. Nerikomi is defined as a decorative process by layering coloured clay and then slicing through to create patterns. I apply colour and pattern with the intention of giving it space to breath around a three-dimensional form. I have always been drawn to colour and pattern, so this year I focused my research into finding my voice in surface design. I have concentrated the application of pattern, placing it onto the form in specific ways, working with space and placement has been really significant in my work. This collection of objects represents a playful and fresh approach to contemporary classic ceramic design.
