Diana Barraclough Ceramics
I am drawn, as always, back to the sea. Over the past year have been experimenting with celadon glazes, the colours of which have a very sea like quality about them.
Very rough seas are my particular passion at the moment whereby I splatter different glazes over stains and slips to produce a lively surface.
I will be donating a sculpture to raise funds for the West Berkshire Community Hospital Rosemary Appeal.

Belinda's work responds to the detritus she finds on the beaches in Cornwall, these finds help to inform her work. The landscapes of the beach give her the inspiration for the colours and textures she uses in her ceramics.
I have been making pots for the last 40 years, since the age of 12. I am a Fellow of The Craft Potters Association, and regularly show my work at Contemporary Ceramics opposite The British Museum. My stoneware vessels are thrown on the wheel and altered or carved at the 'leather-hard stage'. I will be showing my new work which was made in response to The Woodblock Prints of Nana Shiomi.

Sometimes I look at a field or valley and am entranced by the sun, the colours, the shapes, the heat and the breeze and I try to record it in the simplest and most direct way. Large paintings on board and smaller paintings on paper.
