There are only a few potters who use figurative decoration and Vivienne’s work displays a number of qualities not least being a sense of humour not to say whimsy. It is almost impossible to see her pots without smiling. Figures are draped around her vessels in characteristic style with a good eye for balance and elegant draughtsmanship.
I work with red earthenware clay, which is decorated using coloured slips and glazes. My interest lies in making pots, which act as a container for both objects and ideas. The shapes are kept simple and made using hand-processes such as press-moulding, coiling and slabbing. With a restricted palette of colours and figures I work intuitively and spontaneously allowing my everyday thoughts, pre-occupations and sometimes anxieties to dictate the direction of the images created. The figurative decoration, often described as dreamlike, is achieved using brushwork, stencils and sgraffito. Ultimately I like to let the viewer bring his/her own interpretation to the work.
