'By capturing the essence of a place, working from a series of moments, relying on memories and emotions evoked, I explore colour and mark making with a vibrant and intuitive energy.'
'I work and react on instinct, every new brush stroke made is a reaction to the last, each new dab, splash and flick of colour create a natural rhythm and flow to every piece.'
'My vessels have become 3-dimensonal paintings, I enjoy the irregular forms which are constructed, and the relationships between inside, outside, joins and edges. These vessels mirror and reflect the edges within the landscape which inspire me so much, each piece is unique and pose different views just as landscapes do.'
Samantha Silverton graduated with a MA in Ceramics from Bath Spa University in 2018. Inspired by landscape, her work takes the form of abstract mark-making on paper and fired earth.
