Penny O'Brien ceramics artist

'I am a ceramic artist creating tactile landscape vessels, conveying my deep connection to

nature.My work is influenced by the poignant beauty and drama of the landscape duringmy daily

walks on Dartmoor. Each piece is hand-thrown, altered, and texture added to create a form that invites exploration of the surface. Small plants indigenous to the location are also pressed into the

clay. I embed the exact geographical coordinates of each piece's conception using

what3words. Slips, oxides and glazes are then added. I have a lifelong passion for clay. I am self-taught; seeking out opportunities to learn and make ceramics throughout my life. After a career in healthcare, I established my own studio and practice in 2021.

I use white stoneware clay fired in an electric kiln.'
