Raewyn Harrison

Raewyn Harrison is a London based ceramic artist who grew up in New Zealand. She creates porcelain collections with a strong narrative based on sites and structures that fascinate her. Her trademark dribble edges are combined with her own glazes that fragment images, making each piece unique.
The river Thames is a constant source of inspiration which led to the creation of her Mud Larking* series. She collects fragments from the foreshore, delves into archives for historical images, and goes on expeditions to take photographs of decommissioned structures in the Thames Estuary.
Raewyn has conceived and collaborated on public art projects with Thames archaeologist Mike Webber. Throughout the summer of 2017, they delivered workshops in the lead up to the Totally Thames Festival resulting in a large-scale clay installation on the Thames Foreshore in front of Tate Modern.
