30 June – 17 July
Wendy Lawrence was recently involved
in our engagement and learning programme
sharing her enthusiasm for Clay through digital
demonstrations, studio tours and workshops over
the recent Craft Council’s Hey Craft! Weekend.
This short exhibition is an opportunity to now experience
her ceramic works in the gallery space for yourself.
Wendy’s ongoing delight in texture and
surface is key to her oeuvre. Her ideas develop
from geological investigation into natural forms
found in the landscape and man’s influence on that
through the study of archeological sites.
Continuous ongoing research and development
of new forms, increasing the scale of work, and
investigating new surfaces, glazes, engobes and oxides,
is all part of her ongoing journey in clay.
Wendy has worked steadily in her studio in Denbigh
for over twenty years. She is an active member of North Wales
Potters and has participated in many clay events and demonstrations.
These range from The International Ceramic Festival in Aberystwyth
to Clay Art in Wales, and many events throughout the UK
and beyond – including Art in Clay at Hatfield, Earth and Fire at Rufford,
the prestigious CAL Ceramic Art London at the Royal College of Art.
She has exhibited internationally and Ruthin Craft Centre has shown
her work over many years including at SOFA Chicago.
