Project Description

Robyn Hardyman

I throw my vessels on the wheel in my garden studio in Oxford. I make with porcelain, for its delicacy and strength, and the pure surface it offers for a glaze. My pieces are thrown thinly, and while their forms are often inspired by classic oriental ceramics they have a contemporary quality of their own. I appreciate the subtle beauty in simplicity and an attention to every detail.

I relish exploring a palette of serene glaze colours and textures, a variety of surfaces to complement the restrained forms. This is always an ongoing process; the thrill of experiment and discovery is one of the greatest rewards in making.

I enjoy the way pots look when grouped together, the shapes and shadows between the forms, and the relationship between their colours and textures. I also enjoy how a good pot feels when weighed in the hand, that sense of balance that tells you when it’s right.
