Penny graduated from West Surrey College of Art with a BA in Fine Art but has been working exclusively in ceramics since. Her journey has been from traditional craft pottery to making unique sculptural thrown and altered pieces. What started as a passion has become an evolving investigation into touch as an extension of body.
"I hope that this latent energy will be perceptible in the finished, fired piece whether it is as visual movement or the feel of a small vibration at the heart of a hand held piece."
Penny uses stoneware and porcelain and fires her work in either electric or wood kilns. Surface references are also made to particular places or points in time by brushwork and painterly use of combined glazes.
