ABOUT THE ARTIST
People and their stories, particular or universal, form the nub of my explorations using hand built ceramics. Throughout the process I look for physical and emotional exchanges whilst responding to the materials and the underlying narrative. I hope to arrive at something that connects, invites contemplation and individual interpretation.
Expression is sought through form and surfaces created from various stoneware clays; porcelain, black, and crank. These are impressed to create marks and textures, then manipulated into structures using slab and direct modelling techniques. Finally, inspired by earth colours; slips, engobes, oxides and glazes are applied.
Ceramic sculptor, Su Jameson, graduated in 1987, with a BA Hons in English and Fine Art from Exeter University. Subsequently attaining a Post Graduate Diploma in Sculpture from the City and Guilds of London Art School she had several exhibitions at London venues in the 90s including the Barbican Centre and the Boundary Gallery, whilst also working in teaching and community arts.
For the next two decades, teaching was the focus; however, in 2014 Su decided to return to making art full time and has retrained herself in the medium of ceramics, and now exhibits with galleries in the South East.
