Made by Mollie Brotherton
The medium of clay provides the perfect material in which to express my thoughts and ideas about the wonder of the wildness around us.
Every piece is hand built using a variety of techniques but slab building is core. I impress rolled clay with plants, found objects and blocks that I have carved by hand, cut and then assembled. Colours are applied in many layers using slips, liquid wax and paper as resist and then oxides to enhance textures and plant forms. All my work is made from grogged stoneware and fired to 1260°c.
