David Allnatt

Concepts All of my work is hand built with red earthenware clays and fired up to 1160 degrees centigrade. Using a combination of glaze formulas and firing temperatures I build up textural surfaces in a range of rich colours. The recent forms have developed through a study of human and animal gestures.Influences Ancient cultures, The natural world; own cultural identity (White, British); own gender (Male); Sexual Identity (Heterosexual)Career path Qualifications: 1966 Foundation Studies Dip AD Graphics and 3D Design, Sutton School of Art, Surrey Teaching Experience: 1994 Part-time Lecturer, Ceramics Department, Coventry University 1994 Visiting Lecturer, Ceramics Department, Mid-Warwickshire College 1979 Part-time Lecturer, Ceramics Department, Sutton College of Liberal Arts, Sutton, Surrey Areas of work: Adult education Community arts Exhibiting Lecturing Private commissions Public art Studio workshop technician Visual arts consultancy Workshops Collections: Birmingham City Art Gallery Sutton College of Liberal Arts, Sutton, Surrey Herbert Art Gallery, Coventry Derbyshire Museum Service Evershed, Wells and Hind, Birmingham read full statement
