This is a new collection of pieces from our studio resident Elaine Bolt that feature layers of porcelain slip coloured with oxides. Some layers are embedded with seeds that burn away in the the kiln or marks are made through the layers to reveal the contrasting tones.

“Contrasting tones and subtle forms…
I create hand-thrown vessels in porcelain, using a pallet of chalk whites, stone greys and dark flint blacks. Some are combined with willow, wire and natural materials to create unique pieces in tones inspired by the Sussex landscape."
Elaine is a ceramic artist working with clay and mixed media, creating works and compositions guided by a sense of narrative and steeped in the context of the local surroundings. Her work includes hand-built wall pieces and thrown vessels in porcelain and stoneware, incorporating local clays and mixed-media.
