Elisabeth Bailey

Elisabeth uses clay throwing skills developed over 35 years to form simple ceramic shapes as backdrops for free, swift brushwork drawings. She works with hot wax, painting directly on the newly glazed surface, then dipping pots in another colour. During the kiln firing, designs move with the shape of the form, so pot and drawing become one. Inspiration comes from animals and birds she studies, drawing them until a few brush strokes define shape and form.

Elisabeth's work can be seen at The Nolon Stacey Gallery, Masham, the Moors National Park Centre, Danby, and Sutton Bank National Park Centre, nr Thirsk.
