Penny Varley Ceramics
Hare on Oak
My mission as a designer maker is to encourage others to embrace the ceramic art from through exhibitions of my work, through my workshops and by inspirational talks.
The flora and fauna encapsulating the landscape surrounding my garden studio and beyond, colour, texture, heat and architectural design all contribute to inspire my work.
I work in Stoneware and Earthenware clays. Each piece is fired a minimum of twice in an electric kiln to get the desired effect.
Stoneware creations - primarily for the garden are designed using coil and slab techniques with a limited colour palette.
Earthenware is used for bold and highly decorated pieces many of which are thrown on the potter's wheel.
