Ceramics

by Christine-Ann Richards.

Christine-Ann Richrds trained at Harrow School of Art and Technology under Mick Casson (1971-73), then worked with Bryan and Julia Newman and later, with David Leach. She set up her first workshop, in London, in 1975 and now lives in Somerset. She is a Fellow of the Craft Potters Association, Fellow of the Society of Designer Craftsmen, the Somerset & Devon Guilds of Craftsmen. 

Much of her work is influenced by her journeys to the Far East, and especially by her first visit to China, with other potters, in 1978. For the last 25 years she has co-ordinated and accompanied other artists and people from throughout the world on visits to other artists in China. 

Her classical oriental style thrown porcelain vases and bowls are glazed in transparent, dark green crackle and copper red glazes. Her black on white splash decorated wares remind one of her interest in Chinese calligraphy and painting. 

 

 

 

 

Western Australian landscape painting 

by Stephanie Burns.

Stephanie urns lives in the Eastern States of Australia. Reflecting on her father's recent passing Burns began to think of the time they spent living in the north west of Western Australia. 

The beaches and rocks of the Exmouth area, the incredible colours of the landscape, and the intense red/brown colour of the sand, the fabulous aqua waters and the spectacular salt lakes inspire these aerial views. Although elements of the paintings are remembered, the paintings are of actual places, particularly Shark Bay and Lake Carnegie.

Burns' Australian landscape paintings are within the tradition of the genre but combine her knowledge of Aboriginal art with the vision of artists working in the European tradition. 

 

 Shark Bay, acrylic on canvas, 91.5 x 91.5cm 

 

 Lake Carnegie 8, Western Australia, acrylic of canvas, 91.5 x 91.5cm

 

Lake Carnegie 2, Western Australia, acrylic on canvas, 91.5 x 91.5cm
