New Makers For 2015 Carol Wainwright

Carol Wainwright

We are delighted to be showing the work of established maker Carol Wainwright.  Her fluid brush marks are exaggerated by the sumptuous glazes, creating surfaces that give the illusion of being freshly painted.

I like making; mixing my clay that comes straight from the quarry ( hence the occasional lump ), holding brushes, the luscious slop of the glaze. When I start glazing I don't know how it will finish. Usually the first marks are made with the black and all that follows is a response to that first mark. I love pattern and, above all, colour. The contrast between the various qualities and surfaces of the glazes matters to me. This is the way that I build my pictures on the plates.
