Artwork for Vanessa Burley
ALL THE YOUNG DUDES
SALT GLAZED AMOEBA
I have 3 different forms of ceramic/sculpture work :
Stoneware animal sculptures wearing flamboyant clothing combined with bold textural patterns.
Thrown and altered Tear Pots, using natural and fond objects to create one off pieces.
Thrown and textured organic pots and dinnerware, using my unique roulettes to create one off patterns.
I take my inspiration from my fascination with the textural qualities of shapes in nature and found objects. Combining it with my love of outrageous fashion.
I am a 3D designer, sculptor and potter who makes both functional and sculptural work from clay. I like to push the clay to it’s limit’s and experiment with new ideas.
I have been teaching art, and product design for 25 years. Gaining knowledge and experience to share with others.
I have a BA (Hons) in 3 Dimensional Design in wood, metal, ceramics and glass.
Currently I teach Product Design and Textile Art, which is reflected throughout my artwork.
I have taught workshops in watercolour painting, stained glass and ceramics to adults.
