Paula Briggs

Crossing the divide, real or imagined, between art, craft and design my work is embedded in material exploration and communication. Through making I explore human emotion and experience, the challenge of creating work that communicates or generates an emotional response a driving force.

That we are able to embody a clay vessel with memory and emotion constantly intrigues me, and observing reactions and relationships between vessel and viewer fascinates me.

Working in series, I hand build sculptural vessels in both porcelain and stoneware. Often developed from initial exhibition pieces, the principle of working with a single form allows for an exploration of response to scale, colour and surface, while maintaining a sense of belonging across the work. Ensuring each individual piece is part of the whole yet has an identity all of its own, is a vital element of my work.
