The non figurative ceramic pieces Deborah makes are in response to specific places and memories. There is nothing more fundamental than the earth with which to fulfill this, and clay is the perfect medium. The pieces are slab built in earthenware, porcelain,  and stoneware ranging from  the delicate and fragile to the robust and challenging. The power of an object to illicit a memory is intriguing and clay is a wonderful, pliable medium with which to express this. Three series – The Shoreline, Broken Memories and Transient Memories – have evolved.  Each piece is different and evokes a fleeting memory of place.

Deborah has studio space at Kingsgate Workshops in London.
