About Lorna Gilbert Ceramics

Lorna Gilbert Ceramics

I make pots to give you joy and a moment to slow down and reflect.

My name is Lorna and I am a potter living in West Yorkshire, I mainly work in white stoneware and many of my pieces are thrown on the wheel.
I come from a fine art/textile background and I am fascinated with texture.
I love my pots to be held, used and enjoyed.
As a maker I am aware of our individual impact on the environment.
In my creative process I try to minimize the energy I use and reuse material wherever possible. My greetings cards are printed using using eco friendly inks and are packaged using biodegradable wraps. The swifts I create are made using recycled clay.

My current work is exploring open spaces and their horizons. I am interested in the interaction between matte and gloss glazes as well as their interaction when mixed during firing. This creates tension and fusion, hinting at unseen bouderies as well as reflections and shadows.
I want my pieces to evoke a sense of calm, balance and intrigue with their user. Some of my latest pots are bringing in lines and textures to represent human impact on the environment.
