Michelle Young-Hares

My work is inspired by natural forms and current ceramics are a response to a fascination with plant forms. Using macro photography, I like to play with scale, isolating swellings, buds and tendrils, reinterpreting them into sculptures which often explore the interplay between context and experience.
Works are hand built, thrown and altered, often with modelled additions. I fire in oxidation to stoneware temperatures, using multi-layered glazes to build depth and fluidity.
