Artist Statement
Vivienne's ceramics are made from Valentine's Parian clay and Valentine's Parian casting slip.  Each bowl is made using a combination of hand building and slip casting.  The cradles are either slabbed or slip trailed. She uses water erosion and carving to create the coloured clay designs.  All of Vivienne's decorative forms are unique and are fired to stoneware with a twenty minute soak which brings out their translucent qualities. 

Vivienne's work will be exhibited by Barewall Gallery at Middleport Pottery as part of the MPA exhibition starting on the 19th March 2016 until 24th April 2016.
