There are two strands to Vicky's work, which in some ways are quite opposite. One strand is about precision and control and the other a much freer form of expression. Common to both are the techniques she uses to create surfaces on clay. Surface qualities, mark making and colour are an important aspect of her work and the composition and organisation of these surfaces is what she finds exciting. Ceramic printing techniques offer the opportunity to work in both a precise way or if desired a less controlled way allowing for the unexpected to arise, each have their own challenges.
She is interested in the relationship between vessel forms and the space they occupy within a composition. The pieces do not have a specific function but there are references to the tabletop and the presentation of food.
Vicky studied at Staffordshire University gaining a BA(Hons) and thereafter an MA in Ceramic Design. On completion of the postgraduate study she became a Research Fellow in the School of Art & Design. On completion of the period of research in 1988 Vicky was appointed as a part-time lecturer at Wolverhampton teaching on the BA Ceramics Course. Her workshop is in Stoke-on-Trent, currently Vicky is working as a freelance maker and educator. Vicky is a member of Contemporary Applied Arts, London and has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally.
