Gail Stubbs

Gail Stubbs is a ceramicist based in South Devon and makes both functional and installation work. Her ceramics are closely associated with the complex issues surrounding the mechanisation of food production, overfishing and fish politics. The work exists in the realm of social political commentary through craft production.

Fishing related images have been screen printed onto slabs of white stoneware which have been used to form plates using a RAM press with dies cast from factory made originals. The screen-printed images distort when pressed illustrating how the narrative of food and fishing is sometimes romanticised and warped by both marketers and consumers.

Westcountry clay has been used and limited firings carried out during the making process enabling the production of the work with a low carbon outlay.
