Joanna Veevers: Printmaking

Print and creation of The Crafted City banner, The Cathedral Primary School

A degree in Printed Textiles followed by an MA in Ceramics at the Royal College of Art reinforced and informed an early fascination with drawing, pattern and surface which permeates all of Joanna Veevers’ work, whether it is slip cast tiles and wall pieces, jewellery, mosaics, drawings or prints.

In the making of her ceramic work Joanna uses a fine line scratched into plaster and lays down marks and imagery using coloured slips, (liquid clays), in a sedimentary and modular way, prior to casting and firing. The technique results in a ceramic surface with graphic qualities which could be associated with some printmaking processes rather than with ceramics. Memories, landscape, gardens, stitched textiles, collections, the concept of order and the visual nature of museums; all influence her work’s content and arrangement. Attention to detail, repetition, the division and sub-division of space, and the placement of elements within those spaces, are Joanna’s visual pre-occupations when drawing, designing and making.
