About Tiffany
Combining elegant ceramic forms rich colours and intricate sgraffito drawings each one of Tiffany’s unique pieces have been designed and created by hand. Inspired by the natural world with Art Nouveau influences she produces her own distinctive style of ceramic art.
Biography Back to top

Every unique design created starts life as a detailed line drawing and this is transferred on paper by hand onto the clay surface. Each piece has been thrown on the wheel, left to slightly dry and then goes through many different processes and techniques developed over the many years as a ceramic artist to create her intricate images onto the damp clay surface.

Tiffany's decoration is a combination of painting with clay slips, carving and using sgraffito to draw the delicate lines onto each design. This takes many hours of work and no two pieces will ever look the same.

Once completed these are left to dry for a few weeks and fired twice in an electric kiln during which she has selectively glazed the main themes leaving the rest of the decoration matt.

She has developed all the clay slip colours making them unique and is always testing new and exciting colours.

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.
