Penny GreenArtist, Maker, Curator, Teacher
I make ceramic tableaux which are both conversational pieces and miniature worlds. Largely figurative, the subject matter is often nature-themed and seemingly mythic, while animals and fairy tales weave narrative paths around them, I appropriate many historical references such as textiles, paintings and texts, often sparking off new bodies of work some of which are interventions into particular places or buildings. The pieces are exquisitely decorated with rich colours, patterns and strangely textured glazes whilst more recent creations see the use of fine white porcelain against dark heavy black clays.
