SERENA GWYNN

 

“Since I find abundant inspiration from my surroundings on the Land’s End Peninsula, it feels right to incorporate local elements into my smoke-fired sculptures. I use clay from St Agnes clay pits, and ferns, leaves, seeds and seaweeds collected on my daily walks. My forms are hand-built then burnished when leather-hard, until smooth and shiny, and then bisque-fired. Slip is applied over the ferns and seaweeds, followed by sgraffito-worked patterns and marks. The smoke firing takes place over about eight hours, using wood shavings, in a simple galvanised bin in my garden. ‘Ghost’ images are formed by the resists causing various depths of carbonisation. The completed work is smooth and tactile and patterned with visible ‘memories’ of the ferns and seaweeds, together with random marks from the smoke.”
