About Rachel Grimshaw

Born in 1967, my ceramics studio is based in my hometown of Wigan in the North of England. I attended St Helens School of Art followed by Manchester Polytechnic (3-dimensional design course, specializing in interior design), graduating with a BA Hons, 1st Class in 1990. I have practiced as an Interior Designer within an architectural practice since 1990. In 2009 I gained a Distinction in MA in Ceramics (tutor David Binns) at the University of Central Lancashire, Preston. Professional Membership of the CPA was granted in 2012. Exhibitions have been held widely in the UK including at Galerie Besson, London, The Bluecoat Display Centre, Liverpool, The Yorkshire Sculpture Park and Contemporary Ceramics, London. I look forward to exhibiting at Ceramics Art London (‘CAL’) in 2021 (postponed from March 2020). 


Exhibitions beyond the UK have been held in Australia, Spain, Hungary, Romania, Latvia and Japan where I gained an ‘Honourable Mention’ at MINO in 2014 and awarded ‘The Land of Pottery’ 2nd prize at the Mallorcan Ceramics Biennale. My work is in several international collections, including Mino and Kecskemet in Hungary.
