Beth Blackburn

"The shapes themselves are a product of personal emotional battles, a process of processing life through the tactility of the clay."

Beth Blackburn is a ceramic sculptor and has been making shapes since university over 20 years ago where she studied three-dimensional design, specialising in ceramics. Having grown up in west London and moved to the coast 12 years ago, Blackburn finds daily country walks are a source of constant inspiration; the joys of the ever-changing sky, sea, and landscapes. Beth hand rolls every coil and pushes them together to form a larger structure that is then manipulated by hand, stretching the clay, scraping back, and often reworking certain forms or shapes over a period of time. Manipulation of shadow, light, and reflection is of key importance to Blackburn’s practice.

The Hook's Take: 
Beth Blackburn's shapes change depending on the angle that you view them from. Each time you move the shape it becomes something entirely new.
