Exploring expressive techniques of working with the clay is a vital aspect of Sheila’s pot making. She seeks out and employs processes that have elements of the unpredictable, irregular and enlivened about them. The surface decoration emphasises the freedom of the clay work, often involving the movement of various thicknesses of slips over the clay, traces of the application processes revealed. Free pencil line drawings and gestural sgraffito marks are informed from Sheila’s spontaneous drawings. Sometimes there are suggestions of flowers; at others the repetition of freely drawn patterns.
