"I have always been a Nature-watcher. Environmental issues are close to my heart – and my work has always been a way for me to draw attention to the beauty of (and problems faced by) the inhabitants of the natural world. It is a world which is increasingly unfamiliar to humans as they have less and less connection with it."
Blandine's works are individually hand-built in either porcelain or stoneware. No moulds or repeat methods are used in the building stages. Colour and texture are added using porcelain slips which are stenciled, painted and incised. Oxides and glazes are added after biscuit firing and fired again, to 1240 Centigrade. Small amounts of onglaze enamel and/or metallic lustre are added for the third firing, which further enrich the surfaces.
