Lynne McGechie - Lynne McGechie Ceramics
I have been practising ceramics for about 15 years and have studied ceramics and 3D design as a mature student at Harrow Weald College, West Herts College, Barnfield College and Chelsea College of Art as well as attending short courses with several professional potters. I am interested in texture, pattern and surface decoration and gain inspiration from ancient artefacts, architecture and the natural world.
I am currently making thrown and hand built forms using stoneware clay. I make decorative patterns using sgraffito in a blue/black slip and I use a matt white glaze, which on firing makes a blueish or black background to contrast with the white pattern. In addition I smoke fire some pieces and like the random effects created by the fire.
