‘I have always drawn, designed and painted and love the energy of random lines or marks, from a sketch, painting or just found. I love how just the right simple line or mark can completely change the feeling of a piece.’

‘My work is a collection of thrown, uncluttered porcelain forms. I throw and turn the pieces to a fine finish which, when left unglazed, gives the porcelain a paper-like, tactile quality. I use stains, oxides and slips, splashing or sponging away areas and inlaying lines, aiming to create imperfect and unpredictable marks. Using a palette of strong but muted colours and often decorating work on the wheel to capture a feeling of movement and spontaneity. I’m interested in the contrast of the simple and symmetrical, refined forms with loose, spontaneous surface marks.’ Ali Tomlin
