After completing her Fine Art Ceramics (BA Hons) at Exeter College of Art and Design, Blandine taught for five years at colleges in Somerset before setting up her first ceramic studio in Devon in 1988. Through a combination of skill and her unique vision of the natural world, Blandine has not only established her reputation as an artist intent on pushing creative boundaries, but has also gained an enthusiastic following for her hugely collectable one-off sculptural works.
The inspiration for most of Blandine's work begins in the forms of the landscape of her immediate surroundings in North Devon. Her works are directly affected by the colours of the changing seasons, and the scale of her sculpture captures both the broad sweep of ploughed fields and the minutiae of the hedgerows.
All of Blandine's works are unique - they cannot be repeated. No moulds or repeat methods are used in their production. Colour and texture are added using porcelain slips which are stenciled, painted and incised. Oxides and glazes are added after biscuit firing and fired again, to 1240 Centigrade. Small amounts of onglaze enamel and/or metallic lustre are added for the third firing.
