cambridge contemporary art

Linda Caswell

Linda Caswell's agateware is a contemporary use of a traditional technique.  The colours are in the clay itself, and not a surface decoration.  Instead of mixing clays of differing colours, she works in porcelain alone: colouring some and mixing the colours to create her patterns. She enjoys this combination of part control and part happenstance. Linda decides the colours, the quantity of colour and create the patterning, but then a random element takes over - beyond the artists control. The work is made in a series, but no two pieces will be identical. Only the rims are glazed. Once-fired in an electric kiln.

Linda trained in studio ceramics at Harrogate College of Art and have been working as a potter since 1988.
