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 and West Sussex about the influence and inspiration for my work as well as talks about New Zealand ceramics and iconic potters such as Josiah Wedgwood.

I now also do water-colour paintings, mostly flowers and landscapes which also reflect my interest in Asian art and Chinese water colours.
