Linda Bloomfield’s smooth beautiful and practical ceramics in their gentle spring colours are a pleasure to hold and to use.
‘Form is my inspiration. Soft, simple forms with faint throwing lines and dimples impressed into the freshly thrown clay. I use porcelain for its smoothness, whiteness and translucency. Glazes are tactile satin matt or fluid transparent, with colour sometimes hidden inside a form. I strive for subtle textures and colours using raw oxides rather than commercial ceramic glazes or stains.’ Linda Bloomfield
