MARSHALL COLMAN
My ceramics exploit colour, variation and contrast and the relationship between pattern and form. I make individual decorative pieces but I also enjoy the technical challenge of making tableware in batch production. I am one of the few ceramists in Britain using the difficult medium of tin glaze, which requires decisive painting on the unfired, absorbent glaze: llike painting on blotting paper, it has to be right the first time. Tin glaze has a long pedigree (including Italian maiolica), but I make a contemporary interpretation of it, drawing inspiration from many sources including abstract expressionism and
1950s textiles. I won the St Albans Museums Trust Prize in 2013 for ceramics shown at UH Galleries. You are very welcome to contact me if you would like to talk to me about my work.
