Founder member Courtyard Artists Warwickshire C.I.C and manager of the Courtyard Gallery and Studio, a local creative community space based at Stratford Garden Centre Passionate about wild landscape and plants, Robin’s ceramic work is inspired by her natural surroundings and designed to integrate with plants. Her work ranges from small garden sculptures and tile panels to jewellery and small vessels.
She uses clay in a playful fashion to create ceramic forms and vessels to reflect the wilderness of the landscape. Using torn and textured clay gives her hand-built forms and panels a rugged naturalistic finish which are then painted in a pallet of soft colours reflecting historical imprint and light quality of the landscapes.
She uses a variety of different clays to create her work, including stoneware and porcelain clays. The colours she uses are built up in layers using coloured slips and underglaze pigments to create a painterly finish.
