Artist profile

Vivienne Sillar Ceramics

My work is ceramic, hand built forms which are inspired by the fluid streamlined shapes of bird and sea life. Through using burnishing and smoke firing I explore surface decoration which is constantly surprising as it evades total control. This for me is part of the pleasure of making. I have been teaching at Chesterfield College for the past 15 years and have recently left to work full time on my ceramics. I am a member of Peak District Artisans and regularly exhibit in Derbyshire and Scotland. See my website for dates and venues.
