Path and Inspiration Maree and Paul Allitt have been artistic collaborators since our time together at art school in Portsmouth during the 1970s. Our shared interest in surface, colour and pattern is central to our thinking. For many years we worked at Kettle’s Yard house and gallery in Cambridge, with its close association with British Modernism and the St Ives School. And too, we've always been aware of other artistic approaches, such as John Clappison's work at Hornsea Pottery.
Process and Practice Handmade in our Cambridge studio our slab-built porcelain ceramics are decorated using stencils and flat slip colours. In the final firing some areas are glazed making a contrast of matt and gloss surfaces and giving each piece an attractive tactile quality.
