Rachel’s ceramic vessels explore form, pattern and surface texture.
She interprets compositions of line and colour that she has captured from within the coastal landscape, as surfaces for aesthetic objects.
Rachel uses the slab process to enable her to use the clay as canvas onto which she creates patterns and textures with slips and oxides.
The movement in each piece is important to her, she alters each individual piece to create relationships between the pieces and highlight the contrast between the surfaces of the interior and exterior.
Rachel aims to make simple yet contemplative vessels which can stand alone or be placed in small groups.
Heart Gallery loves Rachel’s vessels and hope you do too.
