Juliette Purdy - ceramics

My work is inspired by conversations I’ve had with people. I try to capture the character of the individual. I’ll sometimes sketch a person as they talk to me, observing their movements and emotions - I’ve noticed that when an older person reminisces their face will light up, as the people they remember are briefly brought back to life.

The ceramics are made using porcelain. Sometimes I will include a vintage found object – perhaps an old tea packet or soap box - to include in the piece; it will always be something that ties-in with the character.
