14 Hand built ceramics: vessels with lively tactile surfaces with Rachel Wood

Be experimental! Learn to apply slips and glaze, building layers in combination with mark making, adding vitality and life to your work. Working through fundamental techniques, explore with playful experimentation, understanding the qualities of the clay, exploiting its strengths and limitations. Each student can expect to have made several test pieces, and a larger piece of work fired and glazed.
Rachel Wood works from Harley Foundation Studios in Welbeck, England, creating hand built stoneware vessels, recognised for their unique and complex surfaces. After assisting renowned ceramist, Robin Welch, Rachel now exhibits widely across Europe. In 2016 she was winner of the Neue Keramik Prize in Germany, and in 2017 winner of the Diessen Ceramic Prize.

The marks of making and assembling 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 a metaphor for how Rachel interprets the landscape and world around her.
