Maria Brockhill Clay Art

My clay work is known for the vibrant glazes that I make myself. The colours are rich and reminiscent of jewel colours like ruby red, emerald green, sapphire blue.

I usually work with white porcelain clay as it highlights my glazes, but I am enjoying a sideways step into working with red clay for a change. The clay fires a rich deep red brown and is very tactile. It allows me to focus on the textures and marks I like inscribing on the clay, and is a good contrast to the shiny glazed work I usually do.

All of my clay work is suitable for the garden or inside.
