Wendy Lawrence

6 February – 31 March 2016

Born from an obsession with texture, particularly in rocks and geological structure, which Wendy documents on walks in North Wales and travels further afield. Her ceramic pieces are sometimes spontaneous and at other times carefully carved, attempting to capture the energy and power of geological form and describe the ordered structure of rock strata. Glazing the work is unconventional, using highly reactive and eruptive materials applied in multiple layers, often very thickly, creating rich textural surfaces. This process of glazing furthers the sense of geological quality and provides an element of chance.

All works are available to purchase.
