Sara Moorhouse


The development of my work into ceramics, colour and spatial perception began with a Masters in Cardiff in 2003, ideas of which I am now developing by way of a PhD. The work looks at how spaces within landscape are altered depending on the ever-changing colours of season, weather, time and farming. The bowls act as a canvas for paintings that distil aspects of landscape, altering the size, depth and shape of the form by their colour.   Bowls can be made to seem wider or narrower, deeper or shallower or they may appear to undulate, move or hover by the juxtaposition of finer lines.
