About Wendy Lawrence
Wendy Lawrence received a BA in 3D Design (Ceramics) from the University of Central Lancashire in 1998 and has since taught ceramics and run workshops for schools, colleges and community groups. She has participated in symposiums and workshops in Britain, Europe and America and was a guest artist at the International Ceramics Festival, Aberystwyth, in 2003. Wendy is interested in textures of natural geological forms which she observes on her walks in North Wales where she lives. She experiments with glaze using highly reactive substances to create rich textural surfaces to evoke the natural structure of rock strata. She fires the work to 1260 degrees C in an electric kiln, varying the atmosphere from oxidation to heavy reduction.
