Bethan makes everyday, functional earthenware decorated with slip, oxides, lustre and sgraffito.

Category: Ceramics
Since graduating in 2011, Bethan worked full-time for a ceramicist. She now works from Kigbeare Studios & Gallery, a pottery in Devon, where she creates her own range of slipware.
Her work is thrown using red earthenware clay and then decorated with slip, oxides, lustre and sgraffito, a technique where the slip is etched into to reveal the clay body underneath.

Originally I studied fashion and textiles, so my love of print and illustration give a contemporary look to a traditional ceramic process. The illustrative decoration is abstract, organic and lively with motifs. I am continually developing my pots to create a range that is functional; everyday ceramics that can be used and enjoyed by others.
