Handbuilt and thrown ceramics

Rachel wants each individual piece of work to share
with you its own spirit...its own character.

She want the marks of making and assembling to reflect the journey of exploration and learning in each piece, just as a wrinkle or dimple depicts expression and character in a human face.

The colour, texture and energy of her forms are influenced by the landscape around her, which is used as metaphor.
The impulsive desire we all have to want to touch, and the inherent emotional need to be touched, underpins the technical, creative and emotional foundations of her work.

Rachel's personal intuitive touch is an integral unique trait in all her work - a dent in the soft clay, a tear, rip, and a finger or handprint in the glaze. She also plays with the rhythm and movement of clay on a wheel to reveal fresh and spontaneous surfaces.
