Handblown Glass with Cane Work
Artist: Michael JamesHunter 
Profile: Since 1981 I have been investigating cane working techniques, an enquiry into process that has been a worthwhile and necessary journey of what some might call “trial and error”. The experience and knowledge gained during this learning curve was essential for my personal development as an artist working within the disciplines of cane making. Now some 30 years later and working from my own studio I have developed my own unique style of abstract art combining Venetian and French cane working techniques within my preferred canvas of self-expression a blown vessel or blown sculpture. It is my belief that the true artistry behind any creation is the participation and understanding of the journey through transformation as each piece undergoes its own unique choreography, which is often sadly missed by the collector who possesses only the conclusion. Cane making requires organisation and discipline that few have truly mastered, most cane work artists have studied with a Murano maestro, I am possibly unique having been self- taught, which I believe allows greater freedom to think outside the box, obviously the past juxtaposes with the present and to move forwards into contemporary sometimes it is necessary to look backwards.

Ceramic
Artist: SarahSaunders 
Profile:

Sarah Saunders is a figurative Ceramicist working mainly with the construction of slabs. Focusing mostly on human forms, her quirky figures are often decorated with animal and flower details. Each piece is coloured using slips, oxides, and underglazes and fired to stoneware temperatures.

Inspired by Folk Art sculpture, Sarah's style is concerned with the simplification of form, creating sculptures with unique and otherworldly shapes and lines.

ARTIST STATEMENT

‘I am inspired by nature every day. From very early on in my life I loved plants. Especially the architectural appearance of flower heads and seed pods.

Over 30 years ago I started pottery as a hobby. This hobby has turned into a full-time profession about 10 years ago.

Most of my work is decorative ceramics. Ideal for display in the garden, on a balcony or on a patio, or indoors.

I start with throwing the pieces on the potter’s wheel; subsequently, clay is added, cut out, and sculpted until the final shape has been achieved.

All work is fired to stoneware temperatures. Therefore, the decorative pieces are frost-proof and suitable for outdoors all year round.

I love making my own glazes. The experimenting never really stops! I want the colours of my work to reflect the brilliant colours in nature. And through the change of the seasons. I want to let the glazes tell a story inspired by nature, travel, landscape, and environment. This is my way of painting with minerals and fire.
