Mary Johnson Ceramics

made by hand, drawn from life

Blue and White cylinder pots are inspired by the plants which grow between the paving and cracks in the garden. They are assembled from pieces of thrown vessels which have been torn apart or stacked on top of each other. Painted by hand  with cobalt oxide from wild plants or weeds. They remind me of roofing felt, peeling paint and rust, like an old allotment shed.


I am teaching new adult leisure classes in ceramics. Pottery for beginners and improves, at Joseph Wright college in Derby. The class runs on Thursday evenings from 6.00 - 8.00 pm. Contact the college for enrolment if you want to join in. It is fun class with no assessments or pressure, just time to play with clay.
