Lorna Gilbert Ceramics

City: Leeds
Region: Yorkshire and Humberside

I make handthrown white stoneware ceramics that are both functional and beautiful. I come from a fine art and textiles background and am fascinated with texture. I want my pots to be held, used and enjoyed.

My current work is inspired by wilderness, the ocean and mountains. I am exploring the interaction between matte and gloss glazes as well as their interaction when mixed during firing. This creates tension and fusion, hinting at unseen boundaries as well as reflections and shadows. I want my pieces to evoke a sense of calm, balance and intrigue with their user.
