Patricia Shone


Ardvasar, Inverness-shire


raku-fired ceramic, wood-fired ceramic, texture


£45 — £3000


Patricia’s work is inspired by the geology and erosion of the Highlands and the effect of people on the surface of the land.
"The remoteness of the place, its inhospitable landscape and climate, the scale and majesty of the hills - this is a place where we can still feel insignificant."
Through her work Patricia aims to give a sense of that - the forces of nature, spontaneously formed textures, the unpredictable firing techniques, the acceptance of successes and failures.
