Pat Thompson

My current main inspiration is plant life. From the magnificent detail of microscopic pollen grains, through leaf and petal forms to seed pods, there is a wisdom and flow which I try to express in my work.

 I’m also interested in pushing the boundaries of the clay, to find just the right curve of a petal, or that urgent pushing through that happens at the earliest stages of growth. The rhythms and cycles of the year inspire me.

As well as sculptural pieces I make a range of domestic tableware. All my work is made with stoneware clay and glazes, wheel-thrown or hand built, fired to 1240 °C, so is very durable, dish-washer and microwave safe and can be used in the garden too as it is frost resistant.

I studied (at Harrow and Kingston) Fine Art (Sculpture) BA Hons, specialising in ceramics.    Recent exhibitions/shows include the Old Mayor’s Parlour, Hereford; The Old Police Station, Kington & at home;  Hereford Cathedral; Hellens Manor.

I am based at my studio in Herefordshire and continue to develop my own work, as well as teaching weekly pottery classes and courses.
