"I am flatted to be included in the ‘Imbalance’ show of work, the title reflecting very much how I feel as I juggle 3 x part time jobs to fund a kiln build made from reclaimed bricks gathered from 4 dismantled kilns. It is a tough learning curve, but the downdraft kiln will be able to produce any sort of heat work."
For about 30 years Debbie used red earthenware, raw firing decorated domestic ware, sold all over the UK and abroad.
In 2004 she decided to downsize, moving from the 400sq’ workshop at Penhalvean to a ‘girl shed’ in the garden at Newlyn in Cornwall. This new freedom of creativity included exploring high temperatures and reduction firings of Proto porcelains and porcelains, which led to a residency at Jingdezhen in China and a 5 week ‘tea cup’ project with Anna Sykora in Berlin.
