Linda Bloomfield


Statement

Form is my inspiration. Soft, simple forms with faint throwing lines and dimples impressed into the freshly thrown clay. I use porcelain for its smoothness, whiteness and translucency. Glazes are tactile satin matt on the outside and fluid transparent on the inside, with colour sometimes hidden inside a form.
