Wendy Lawrence, the talented UK sculptor who was the artist-in-residence at Flux this spring, will have a small exhibition of work created during her residency.
Wendy Lawrence is a UK ceramist who is a Professional member of The Craft Potters Association of Great Britain and maintains her home and studio in Denbigh, Wales.
The inspiration for her work is derived from forms, textures and surfaces found in eroded rock, and the landscape of antiquity: architecture, culture and worship.
Making combines a number of hand-building techniques: coiling, slab-building and working from solid lumps of clay. She works both spontaneously and at other times painstakingly carving leather hard clay, attempting to imbue pattern and a sense of erosion.
Glazing involves layering reactive and eruptive materials, often very thickly, creating rich textural surfaces. This process of glazing aims to further the sense the eroded antiquity whilst simultaneously providing an exciting element of chance and uncertainty.
