Penny O'Brien Bio

My work is influenced by my surroundings: the landscape of Dartmoor, the ancient woodlands, and the ever-changing weather. I am always happy with clay in my hands, whether experimenting with hand-built pieces, or having fun throwing on the wheel. Texture is very important to me, and I often incorporate found objects in my process in order to create interesting organic textures on both stoneware and porcelain clay. My love of painting and printing leads me to experiment with the surface using slips and oxides. I am intrigued by the chemistry of glazes and enjoy developing and making my own.
