Louise works with white stoneware and porcelain clays. Inspiration comes from the natural environment.
Clare paints mainly Suffolk scenes in watercolour and oils.

Some of Louise’s work is hand-built, some is thrown, in white stoneware and porcelain clays. She also produces sculptural and smoke-fired pieces. She particularly enjoys the organic and unpredictability of the smoke-fired process. The inspiration for much of her work comes from the Suffolk Coast and countryside. The fused glass she will be exhibiting relates to landscapes as well as being more functional and decorative.

Clare works quite freely with watercolour, something that has developed over time. She may layout the structure of a painting with pencil at the beginning or maybe add some ink at the end. Blues and greens have a unique vibrancy here with purples and pinks used in moderation-but quite often they can bring the painting alive. As can a liberal ‘splashing’ technique.
