Rachel Wood Ceramics
Rachel Wood CeramicsThe natural spontaneous qualities of the clay are important to Rachel Wood, so that each pot conveys its own spirit and character. Rachel wants her pots to have a pulse and a heartbeat and wants the marks to reflect the journey of exploration and learning in each pot, just as a wrinkle depicts expression and character in a human face.
Rachel's personal intuitive touch is an integral part of these pots - a dent in the soft clay, a tear, rip and a finger or handprint in the glaze. It is inspired by the strong need we all have to be touched.
The landscape of Derbyshire and Australia are also influential in the colour range. Rachel uses stoneware clay along with a variety of slips and glazes.
