Diana Barraclough Ceramics
Diana Barraclough, Sue Diffey, Belinda Gizzi, Samantha Silverton
I am still exploring paintily surfaces to my pieces, using different clays, stains and glazes to highlight dramatic landscapes. Mostly the pots are hand built so I can make the shapes more irregular. I continue to make large sculptural pieces for the garden.
Drawing, Painting, Printmaking
Over the years my painting has been focused on exploring the juxtaposition of stillness and energy using the humble repetitive form of the vessel; a symbol for both physical and spiritual sustenance. This is my last Open Studios Exhibition and so this collection will reflect my creative journey since 1999 when I first joined; including drawings, paintings and prints.

My love of surface and texture is never far away so once again I will look at the flotsom and jetsom I collect on the beaches of Cornwall and transfer the Colour and texture I see to my work. I will also introduce some smaller pieces that can be worn as jewellery.

I create ceramics inspired by the landscape. I like the warm tones, vibrancy and depth of colour which can be achieved when using slips on a red clay body. I apply slips in a variety of ways to create depth. I work and react on instinct, every new brush stroke made is a reaction to the last, creating a natural rhythm and flow to every piece.
