About Jill Tattersall

"My work is really about opposites - matt and shiny, black and white, the smooth whiteness of porcelain and the earthy texture of grogged stoneware clays."


"I am absorbed by the quiet process of throwing simple cylindrical forms with porcelain and the care and focus needed to finish and decorate it. I love the striking contrast with the excitement of raku firing; the smoke, the heat and the sometimes surprising outcomes. "


"There is always more to explore and experience."


"I first studied ceramics as part of my art A Level at school and still remember the shock of my exam piece exploding in the kiln! After school I studied fashion and textiles at art college. However my passion for ceramics continued during this time when I visited Brick Lane each week and brought home a vase from the 50's and 60's. After college I set up an independent fashion company with 2 friends before working in textile design studios. I then taught drawing, graphic design, 3D and print in further education for many years. During this time I developed a strong interest in ceramics and a desire to improve my throwing on the wheel. I continue to be excited by the possibilities of the unexpected when experimenting with ceramic processes."


"My work is wheel thrown and decorated by me at Cernamic Studio, Stoke Newington, London. I have been a member of this dynamic and inspirational studio since 2020."
