Alison Brown Ceramics


Wilmington, Devon


surface texture, wearable art, sculptural ceramics


£150 — £2500


Making with meaning is fundamental to me. Decades of experimenting with materials, causes my butterfly brain to flutter with thoughts of ceramics, metal or textile. I love the malleability of clay, torn edges and tactile surfaces, patina and rust. Inspiration found in ethnographic collections produces amulets reimagined in metal-studded porcelain and filled with desires. I make sculptural ceramics that adorn and ornament the body or a place. Divining the essence of a form, a simple joy unfolds.
