Biography Back to top

Tiffany’s creative process for every piece begins with a series of detailed drawings. Using a white stoneware she throws her individual forms which are gently manipulated at leather hard introducing an organic feel.

Clay slips are applied and blended setting the background hue for each design. Using Sgraffito she draws onto the clay surface cutting away by hand the top layer of slip revealing the white body underneath. Contrasting colours are added and details drawn onto the decoration completing each intricate design.

Pieces are selectively glazed after the bisque emphasising the main

themes then fired in an electric kiln to 1180°c.

Telling a story and trying to capture a fleeting moment in time Tiffany finds very fascinating. Birds and fish are particular favourites and being such nervous creatures she hopes to give the impression they may take flight from their ceramic home at any moment. Forms and designs are ever changing and she has numerous sketch books waiting to come to life.
