Mary Johnson Ceramics

made by hand, drawn from life

‘Landscapes are culture before they are nature; constructs of the imagination projected onto wood and water and rock’. Simon Schama in Landscape and Memory.

Inspiration comes from many places. Allotments and messy back gardens a favourite place, where ordinary people interact with the environment. They have a chaotic order and rich texture which is a feast for the eyes.

These collections  of useful rubbish, decay and growth represent a world within a world. This work tries to capture some of these surfaces and ideas, along with the creatures that exist within them.

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.
