Rhiannon Williams Ceramics

Ceramic Landscape artist just graduated from Cardiff Metropolitan University. My current work is about an enthralment with the Welsh Landscape expressed through using clay as a metaphor for the geological process. I am exploring the materiality of clay and the landscape through authentic movement and force. I throw, kick, push, hit, slap, slide and dent my work to explore the creation process of the Welsh landscape in a hope of embodying its energy not its pictorial representation.

Artist I’m currently obsessed with. Alison Lochhead.

These fragmented sculptures show amazing textures and breadth of materials. The pieces hold so many interesting and intricate textures, they require close up examination in order to really take in what is going on to see the little cracks and melted metal attached and what is hidden beneath a layer of surface peeling away. The ceramic surfaces are truly enchanting to the eye, they are reminiscent of so many inspiring textures like rust, charred wood, charcoal, scrap metal, old wood, the textures they call in to mind are endless.

Alison Lochhead. Amazing sculptor showing the possibilities for using clay to explore the landscape.

Her most recent work is exploring the stories and marks made on the landscape by the artisanal metal and mineral mines in the Cambrian Mountains. Using mainly clay, cast iron, wood and rocks taken from the mines and put in the kiln, the materials represent the man made elements of the mines, the scars on the landscape and the memories from deep within the mines.

These sculptures are truly amazing!

Ogmore beach. Found loads of interesting rocks and pebbles whilst I was at the beach. Hoping to firstly use them to draw from to develop some ceramics and then to use some of the materials actually within the pieces created.

Amazing natural textures. These natural specimens don’t even look part of this world! The texture and shapes are so intriguing especially from a ceramics point of view.

More fascinating rocks from the American Museum of Natural History. The texture in this is amazing inspiration for my ceramics. Such an amazing creation of nature.

Geological specimen.
I love the colours in this especially the way the yellow mineral or unknown chemical seems to be exploding out of the surface and down from the rock.

Rock fascination.

Photos from the collection at the American Museum of Natural History taken when I was in New York.

So many inspiring weird and wonderful rocks and minerals and geological wonderments. Perfect inspiration for my ceramics.
