Rachel Edwards - Ceramic Artist

As an artist I love to explore our relationship with the natural world and our ancient myths, legends and folk tales.

After studying Art and Illustration in Liverpool I worked as a pen & ink illustrator specialising in Natural History, and over the years I produced a number of educational materials.

During this period I also developed my own work, trying a variety of mediums. After completing a commission to illustrate ‘Northumberland Folk Tales’ for The History Press, I began experimenting with clay and fell in love with it.

I enrolled on a short pottery course and since then have devoted my time to making pieces that express my feelings about the real and imaginary world around me.
