Hand built ceramic sculpture, vessels and tableware.

ISIMG-955240.jpg

Heather Gibson is a self-taught ceramicist based in North London. Her artworks span from large scale ceramic wall pieces to sculptural hand carved vessels and tableware. Having originally trained in Fine Art Photography at Nottingham Trent University, she now works predominantly in clay.

Drawing influence from early pottery traditions, Heather’s ceramics explore the threshold between art and the everyday object. Often beginning by striking, carving, and faceting a block of clay, she then delicately hollows out the interior. New possibilities are uncovered by tearing back layers, repairing, and rebuilding, as well as applying slips, oxides and multiple glazes to the surface. Much like a conversation, this constant play between artist and material allows each piece to reveal itself spontaneously. By exploring clay as a canvas for trace, memory, and mark making, she hopes to capture a history in the object, reminiscent of the cycle of time and the natural aging process.
