Artist's Profile: Joan Hardie Artist's Statement My aims are to produce ceramics that encourage people to look afresh at the natural world and which are lively, interesting, accessible and affordable. My work is inspired by natural textures, colours and forms, particularly from trees, ferns, lichens and fungi. I enjoy trying to capture something of the feeling of a natural subject in clay, so that the ceramic piece becomes a celebration of nature.

Jasmina Ajzenkol = All pieces are hand built using stoneware body. I like contrast between rough and smooth, glazed and textured clay surfaces. I combine the contrasting techniques of layering, distressing the surface of pots by scratching and carving into clay, and burnishing to create a three-dimensional texture using a series of different levels and depths encouraging the eye to move in, rather than bounce away. These are enhanced by the subsequent use of oxides and glazes.

Fenella Elms - Ceramics Artist - Flows "Mounted for wall hanging, these works are intuitively built in porcelain clay to create shifting perspectives. Individually made beads of clay joined to a sheet of porcelain with slip before the whole work is fired together to make one, single piece."
