Gwen Vaughan

All of Gwen Vaughan's pieces are made using the pinching technique, forms are created by paddling the hollow pinched clay into the desired shape. The precious scale of my work is directly influenced by this ancient hand-building process. Heights range from 70 mm - 150 mm.


Gwen uses a rich black clay, and carves into the surface to create a texture inspired by the qualities of slate and stone. Washes of coloured slip emphasize the textural detail and contrast against the blackness of the clay. The addition of a brighter palette of spotted or sponged decoration echoes the nature of the forms.
