MARSHALL COLMAN
My ceramics are made 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 9th century Iraq. I draw inspiration from blue-and-white pottery, 'fifties textiles and the painted ceramics of Stoke-on-Trent. I won the St Albans Museums Trust Prize in 2013 for ceramics shown at UH Galleries. You are welcome to contact me if you would like to talk about my work.
