Ceri Wright

I am a ceramic designer-maker living and working from my 'Shedudio' in Coedpoeth.  I deliver workshops in a variety of media in schools and galleries across North Wales. This year for Helfa Gelf's open studio event I will be sharing my studio with Jackie Kearsley, who also lives in Coedpoeth.

My decorative work is inspired by our joy of celebration. Celebrating annual events such as Valentines, Easter and Christmas, and special moments within our lives and recording them in clay.

My coastal themed work takes inspiration from the shoreline; pebbles, stones, and shells, beach combing and family holidays. Finding the precious stone that becomes a life long treasure.

I use a range of clays from smooth white, blue and black clays to heavily frogged textured clays. Texture is very important in my work, I want it to be tactile, I want you to touch it, cherish it just like that found pebble that can mean so much.

I trained as a wildlife illustrator many years ago and in fact didn’t do any artwork for a long time. It was only after recovering from detached retinas that I began to sketch and draw again but in a more abstract way. My artwork is strongly influenced by nature I love to draw trees, skies and landscapes. I also work with inks, and felt markers which I let run by spraying water on to the image. I have used tea bags to stain paper and blackberries and elderberries too. I am also very interested in working with recycled materials and felting wool to create mixed media pieces.

We will be a part of the Wrexham Cluster group exhibition at Y Caban, Plas Newydd, Llangollen. 2nd - 28th September, 10.30 - 5pm (closed Tuesdays). Please do come along! Ceri and Jackie
