|Valerie has continued to create sculptural ceramics since attaining a Fine Art Diploma in Sculpture, at Winchester School of Art. She likes to portray her impressions of the natural world as well as producing thrown bowls with original embellishment, and a series of amusing, decorative stylised torsos such as those named ‘G string’ and ‘D.J.’ Having grown up on the south coast, Valerie appreciates the wonder and power of the sea; and this influence can be seen in her ‘Wave Bowls’.
Examples of Valerie’s recent work can be viewed in the Summer Show at ‘La Galleria’,
30 Royal Opera Arcade, 5b Pall Mall, London from 4th to 12th July 2019, 10.30 to 6.00pm
These energetic ‘Waves’ are decorated using wax resist with a striking barium glaze, and
‘The Society of Arts’, Penwith Gallery, St. Ives; and a Member of ‘London Potters’.
