Fiona Bates

I work with white earthenware and porcelain clays making larger one off pieces to commission including fireplace surrounds, jardinière and mirrors and most recently pieces inspired by taxidermy.   My work focuses on taking discarded everyday objects and bringing them together to give them new meaning whilst creating unique pieces. 

I was born in Australia, but grew up on the South Coast of England moving to London to study ceramics at St. Martin’s Central School of Art and Design. I then completed an MA at UWE Bristol in Making and Archiving.   My current studio is in Ilfracombe, North Devon where the coastline and sea continue to influence my work. I also focus on taking discarded everyday objects and bringing them together to give them new meaning whilst creating a unique piece of ceramic.
