Wendy Standen

I retired from primary teaching in 2002, having always been in charge of Art and Design in the various schools in which I taught. I had great opportunities to learn skills across the wide range of arty crafty subjects (everything from pottery to lino cuts from woodwork to embroidery!) On retirement I finally had the energy to explore and develop my own interests. Initially I went to life drawing and sculpture classes, loving creating the human form in clay and stone and this…

Rachel Thomas

I create simple functional pieces with an emphasis on simplicity of form, organic in inspiration, with a special handmade quality that makes each piece unique. My ceramics are handmade in small batches and I produce a few small collections a year.I am drawn to simple forms and the beauty of the imperfect. I have an interest in surface texture and keep glazes simple, often white. I work mainly with earthenware and stoneware, sometimes distorting a too-perfect form, or marking…

I work with different types of clay ranging from porcelain, to clays with course textures. I favour hand building with a preference for slabwork. I make up my own slips and glazes and employ different surface techniques depending on the type of clay used in the construction of the piece.

Naomi Frances

I make sculptural glass landscapes and beach scenes using a collage of found items from the local beaches and semi-precious stones. I aim to make my glass work and my images as textural as possible, combining the physical world with the imagined. Since the subjects of my work tend to live outside, I have been making some larger scale pieces for the garden. I create my illustrations on found papers, like old books and train tickets. I like to work on weathered surfaces, like w…

Mervyn Wallis

My most recent work is in stained glass and I am combining my interest in digital media with silk screen printing sand blasting.I begin by selecting a series of images and then with Photoshop adjust tonality contrast etc and convert them into half tone images which can then be transferred to silk screen and printed onto glass.In addition I can use the screens to produce images which can be sand blasted onto the glass.

Karen Norfolk

Clay constantly amazes me, it’s versatility, malleability and ability to transform from a quantity of mud in the ground, to a beautiful piece of art. Karen’s chief influential medium for over 20 years has been bronze and bronze resin, and is still an extensive part of her work. Having shown widely throughout the UK with numerous pieces going abroad, and many private commissions and exhibitions. Over the last 2 years Karen has ventured into ceramics and stoneware. Still keepin…

Hilary Stirling

I am a potter working in high-fired stoneware. My ceramic work is organic and reflects the shapes and textures of the beaches and Downs of Sussex. I make dishes and bowls but my preference is for landscape and seascape plaques which depict scenes of Sussex. I fire to 12.60 degrees centigrade and make all my own glazes using wood ash to which I add re-cycled glass. My clay is a blend of local Sussex clay which give the body a rustic, organic finish. I give talks across East an…

Christine Lloyd Walker

I use ceramic wall and floor tiles, often vintage or recycled discontinued tiles, to create modern and contemporary panels and framed pieces for interiors and gardens. My commissions have included interpreting children’s drawings for playground mosaics. I also paint acrylic landscape canvases and floral water colours in abstract form.
