Pamela Lawton



My work is produced using a broad range of ceramic techniques using porcelain and is a response to political, social or environmental concerns. Recent work, Forgotten Skills, which includes found objects, references the loss of the manufacturing industry and the traditional skills in the Uk. Other work has alluded to how we use, waste and pollute water, the use of pesticides, loss of the worlds natural habitats and global warming.

Making has always been central to my work with each piece being finished by hand. I am particularly interested in the use of multiples, which can be seen in groups or as installations in order to convey my ideas. The aim of my work is to be thought provoking whilst also aesthetically pleasing and beautiful in conveying the works subtle message.
