Lorry Cudmore - A Trick in The Tale / LorryCudmoreCeramics
My work reflects my interest in the natural world. I am drawn to the textures, shapes and colours found in dry stone walls and natural rock formations. I am fascinated by the shapes and patterns formed by erosion in land and seascapes: the wild, uncontrollable and chaotic often resulting in a moment of meditation.
I work with four different clays: black chunky, p2 porcelain, birch and toasted stoneware. I press mould, hand build and throw to create each piece. I fire mainly in gas reduction but also in wood and raku when possible.
My work is always high fire so can be safely left outside all year round in all weathers.
I share my studio base with my painter husband, Malcolm Cudmore, just outside Bungay in Suffolk. We both teach weekly classes and occasional specialist workshops at our studio base. Visitors are very welcome but please call 01986 893291 to check that one of us is in to greet you first. Open studios are generally in early summer.
