Penny De Corte

When designing and sculpting objects of art inspired by animals and birds, I tend to strip away the distraction of detail, creating fluid aesthetic designs. Spirals, coiled vessels and wall plaques have evolved from designs inspired by ammonites and shells. I have been passionate about coiling clay for many years; it is a long and time consuming process but provides me with much pleasure in the making, with each piece being a unique and individual piece of ceramic art. Carving, hand-building and burnishing to a smooth sensuous finish creates a tactility that demands to be touched and enjoyed.
