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.

She is interested in textures of natural geological forms which she observes on her walks in North Wales where she lives (Denbighshire). Her latest work combines simplicity of form and textural carved elements found within erosion, focusing on sculptural pieces which are no longer a surface quality bu become part of the form itself.

She uses a variety of different volcanic glazes which she layers onto the ceramic pieces. She also adds oxides of Copper, Vanadium and Titanium under and over the glazes. Silicon Carbide in the glaze creates a gas whilst firing ahd this creates the bubbles and blisters. The finished effect is one of ancient rock and natural erosion.
