Path and Inspiration
The essence of Lynne’s work is clean, strong, balanced form inspired by her architectural design background. She has a fascination with how materials are joined and how one finish is juxtaposed against another. Details of metals, sand and stone are incorporated to express the association of elements that, like clay itself, occur naturally within the landscape and beneath the earth.
Process and Practice
Her pieces explore different making techniques – primarily slip casting and hand building. She likes to express the beauty of the natural fired finish of clay, whether it be creamy smooth porcelain or rough textured black earthenware with sand inclusions. She uses minimal glazes, just the odd pop of colour, and almost always the addition of a detail of gold, copper or steel.
Lynne works from Wimbledon Art Studios in SW London.
