MARSHALL COLMAN
My ceramics are handmade and decorated using the tin-glaze technique, with free, gestural brush strokes painted on to the unfired, absorbent glaze. The designs exploit variation and contrast, the rhythm of decorated and undecorated areas and the relationship between pattern and form. I am one of the few ceramists in Britain working in tin-glaze, which originated in 10th century Iraq. My style is completely modern, drawing inspiration from blue-and-white pottery, 'fifties textiles and the painted ceramics that came out of Stoke-on-Trent between 18th and the early 20th centuries.

I won the St Albans Museums Trust Prize in 2013 for ceramics shown at UH Galleries.
