Ruth Fairhead - Ruth Fairhead Ceramics
My ceramics begin as simple slabs of stoneware clay which I imprint with my bespoke linocut designs. I then use the slabs to mould and construct tactile forms, continuing to alter and refine shapes as the clay dries.
Patterns and colours are very important to me, and I use bold glazes and underglazes to enhance textures and surfaces of my work.
I enjoy combining the character and individuality of handbuilding with a bold, elegant and contemporary aesthetic.
