Hedda has six bands of colour against a background of matt black stoneware clay and looks good with flowers, twigs or leaves, or as a stand-alone piece or with others from the Collection - as shown in one of the images. The bands vary in width and are in lemon yellow and grey, with simple motifs etched into the surface of some – a technique known as sgraffito. After I’ve finished decorating the piece, it is allowed to dry slowly before the first firing. Then after a day to cool, I glaze the inside and fire again over a 12-hour period to 1185 degrees Celsius to make the colours and glaze permanent. Making ceramics by hand is a slow process but hugely enjoyable to me. Hedda is 19 cms tall.
The Lucienne Collection is named after the textile designer Lucienne Day whose work in the 1950s influenced a wide area of design. Her textile ‘Calyx’ was created for the Festival of Britain in 1951 and is still much admired today. She explored many design sources, but my Lucienne Day favourites, such as Calyx, are from the natural world. My own designs feature a nod to cow parsley, marsh grass, vine tendrils and the contours of ploughed fields.
