Cathy Sumner     ceramics

I have the Diploma in Art from the Stoke on Trent College of Art and my career has included working as an art and pottery teacher and also as a craft demonstrator at the Gladstone Pottery Museum,

My work has many influences and inspirations, fossil and plant forms, early medieval and oriental ceramics among them.

My pieces are slab built or thrown and sometimes altered. I make a range of functional stoneware pieces and decorative Raku fired pieces which vary with every firing as the technique can be unpredictable
