Debbie designs and sculpts in her studio in Chester, using predominantly ceramic but incorporating her passion for wood. Also using metal within her works; she utilises her BA (hons) degree in Applied Art in Metalwork and Ceramic to its full potential.
Debbie gathers inspiration from the natural world; from a single cell to the sun, everything in between and its connections, whether they be joints, juxtaposition, or emotion. She is fascinated by how two subjects, or more, can relate or clash; how they work, move, and sit together or not. Ultimately the connection is vital to Debbie.
Debbie is drawn in by colour, on closer inspection, it’s the shape which drives her work into line and form. She continues to be inspired by the aesthetics of Mother Nature’s bounty and boundless resilience, her power and strength through adversity.
Generally, her processes include slip casting, slumping, hand building, manipulation and carving but she is excited to use and learn whatever skill is required.
Debbie has exhibited extensively in galleries in Chester, North Wales and Lancashire.
