Christine Pedley

Pedley trained as a potter at the Harrow Art School in London and came to work at La Borne at Digan Grès. She perfected her technique in the workshops of international artists such as David Leach, J.-C. de Crousaz, A. de Vinck, P. Digan and Takeo Sudo San.

She makes utilitarian pieces in stoneware and porcelain, either by throwing or modelling using slabs or coils – fired in a wood-fired kiln or with salt in a gas-fired kiln at 1300°C. Some pieces are decorated using brushwork; the motifs are inspired by Chinese calligraphy and painting. Teapots, bowls, jugs, vases and series of boxes bare witness to their original influences – a synthesis of oriental minimalism and British rigour.
