Artist - Fiona Tunnicliffe
I obviously had a misspent youth dragging my family around zoos, aquariums and anywhere that I could observe and photograph animals. There is still a lot to learn, both about form and clay, and I love the evolution that happens when you combine them. The properties that cause clay warp and crack and move in response to heat make it my favourite medium to work with. The fact that I can use stamps, images and textures to add a narrative to the surface is an added bonus. I have been doing this for about 30 years now and see no reason to change.
