Born in Tichborne, Hampshire and trained for four years in ceramics at Daisei Pottery, Mashiko, Japan, Sandy Brown has become an internationally recognised ceramic artist. Her organic forms and painterly decoration have been important features of the ceramic landscape for the last three decades. Her work constantly evolves and notwithstanding the passage of time, her current work, including her paintings, is as fresh and vibrant as ever. She exhibits widely on an international stage – the USA, China, Europe and is constantly in demand for public and private commissions. It is the boldness and scale of many of her pieces that sit so well in corporate and public contexts.
The scale of her work is matched by her working environment. She acquired a redundant glove factory in Appledore some years ago. Her private exhibition space is very special - high ceilings and all white décor show her large-scale work in an ideal environment. The work is exhilarating and displays enormous creative energy.
She is a Fellow of the CPA
... 'Today it is hard to imagine the European ceramics scene without her. She is famous for her spontaneous, passionate use of clay and colours. Her almost provokingly simple use of form and her strong, energetic brush decorations feed from direct emotion, from confidence in her own intuition and from a portion of childlike anarchy she preserved for herself. Sandy Brown's catalytic, liberating influence on European ceramics in the seventies and above all eighties must not be underestimated. At a time when European ceramics threatened to get stuck between Asiatic ideals and local traditions, her impetuous, lustful approach to the material demonstrated exciting new possibilities.'
