Title:  Spotty Dog
Description: Ceramic Sculpture
Artist: Virginia Dowe
Profile: Virginia Dowe studied a Foundation Course at Suffolk College, Ipswich and then Three Dimensional Design (Ceramics) B.A. Hons at The University of Wolverhampton. She creates a range of sculptural ceramic animals. Her passionate and lively approach observes well the attitudes of these creatures, and their individual characters are captured with a sense of fun and directness. She uses earthstone hand building material mixed with varying consistencies of grog skilfully manipulating both extruded and slab forms. Her pieces have a natural and unrefined aesthetic appeal provided by smoke firing.
