Rebecca Perry

Location: Ashbourne   /  Genre: Ceramics

Artist Statement

Rebecca's ceramic practice is driven by her expressive painting style, with the abstract marks influenced by shapes and lines within the landscape. She translates the colours and textures onto her pots using slip decoration, mono-printing and bold glazes. The marks that are produced become gestural, using the surface as a vehicle for her drawing.

To create her earthenware and porcelain vessels, Rebecca uses a combination of slip casting and hand building. The form is kept simple with curved sides to allow for the decoration to be the focal point of each piece. The interiors are glazed with rich, vibrant colours to give a contrast between the inside and exterior. Each piece is made with function in mind, bringing rich hues and echoes of the landscape into the home.
