Sandra Bowkett will be introduced to the stylish shoppers of Magnolia Square this March where she will be exhibiting her range of hand formed pottery. Sandra is drawn to the sculptural and functional objects of many cultures from the refined fine bone china and porcelain of Europe to the bold low fired utilitarian forms of India and Africa.
Sandra's diversity is apparent in the two avenues she takes in her work. One direction is refined porcelain wearable objects, the other small home ware pieces.
"These are usually based on functional forms. I strive for a simple refined form with subtle textures that imply the making. I have been exploring the use of metal oxides and found earth materials. These pieces are either low fired fine clays or porcelains often under or over fired from the recommended temperatures."
