Meghan Downs Ceramics


Drawing and mark-making techniques are used alongside raised textures to directly decorate the ceramic surface, creating richly layered, contemporary slab built Earthenware forms. Spontaneous layering and merging of fragmented imagery, taken from different places, has created a unique collection of ceramic vessels inspired by memory and unconscious experience of place. No two pieces will be the same.

Architectural drawings developed from sketchbook illustrations are applied to clay using processes such as stencils, sgraffito, mono printing, ceramic transfers, slips and underglazes. The spontaneity of decorative processes and the adjustment to building alterations in form for each vessel means the clay becomes a working canvas.
