Hello and welcome to “Isa’s Igloo”!
Firstly, I must give credit to my rather vivid imagination and a somewhat quirky view of life as being the inspiration behind the artwork that is “Isa’s Igloo”.
I have been making pottery for nearly 25 years, and painting for about 10 years.
I favour a textured clay, uncomplicated design and decoration, and bold colours. Mostly my work is sculptural and will sit happily either on a bookshelf or in the garden. Everything has a quirk, and will undoubtedly inspire comment!
In no way am I striving to create perfect or realistic pieces … my animals tend to display human characteristics, everything is a little voluptuous, pouty, cheeky and exaggerated – if you look closely you may even see a little bit of you or someone you know looking back at you!
Having recently joined the Guildford Village Potters, I'm finding that my ever experimental style is working overtime! Until recently I have concentrated on earthenware work of a sculptural nature but am now incorporating a some functional stoneware pieces into my range - of course the experimenting continues, as does the fun!
I take a similar approach with my paintings – the images are not picture perfect, but are stylised, bold in colour and attention grabbing.
