Penny uses porcelain and bone china clays. She makes moulds in which she casts her forms which enables her to make very thin fine forms, often using layers or inlays of different coloured slips. The forms are then hand carved and then finely sanded to achieve a natural smooth "pebble" like quality. She often make forms that link together as pairs.
"My aim is to explore the subtlety of the hollow form in which the the function is secondary to the form. My interest in bone china is to create carved forms with variable areas of translucency, exploring the possibilities of light and shade, sometimes incorporating opaque areas with additional colour.
I do not see my work as primarily functional, rather than as pieces in their own right which enhance the interior in which they are placed and as pieces in which form and decoration become fused.
Inspiration is always from life and drawn from a wide variety of sources including people, architectural features, objects in museums, and natural forms.
My work arises from abstracting, developing and combining different aspects of the natural and the man-made world"
New work by Penny Fowler will be in the gallery and on the website shortly.
