Ruth Gibson - Ceramics
From my garden studio in Shrewsbury, I make ceramic bowls, porcelain jewellery, wall hangings and sculptures. Combining my love of photography, printmaking and ceramics, I create bold screen-printed bowls in black and white, as well as soft and delicate blues and greens. I seek to enhance the qualities of porcelain and to reflect nature in may work. The whiteness of a perfectly round pebble found on a beach, the seemingly scratched patterns found in stones and the smoothness of sea worn shells inspire the design and surface quality.
I uses images including trees, landscapes, water droplets, murmurations of starlings, are screen printed onto sheets of porcelain prior to being carefully crafted into bowls, platters and wall hangings. Her work is completed by a complimentary range of jewellery including pendants, earrings and brooches.
Studio open during 'Shrewsbury Open Studios'.
Visitors are welcomed to the studio strictly by prior appointment.
