Initially trained as a painter at the Royal College of Art, Effie Gibson came to ceramics as another way of exploring mark making, colour and texture. Working with clay to experience the materiality of using a natural substance from the earth to create forms inspired by it - worn and weathered surfaces, lichens, rock formations and the details of wintry landscapes such as light snow blown over gravel.
Effie uses rough and textured clays with a variety of slips glazes applied to the body of the pots. Using a simple matt white glaze which is applied lightly so that the colours of the slips come though. Apart from creating shapes which can be both functional and beautiful, it is the interplay between the different clays, slips and white glaze that is her main focus of experimentation.
