ELLEN MCCANN

These organic ceramic sculptures have been inspired from plants in transition - gently moving towards opening up or slowly decaying. These are forms caught in a brief moment delivering an invitation to imagine what they might become. I work directly with the raw material after initial drawings. 

The sculpture is made with stoneware clay and is constructed using slabs and coils then carved and glazed and fired to 1250 degrees. The sculptures may be placed indoors or outdoors.

I studied sculpture and ceramics at Gray's School of Art, Aberdeen. I taught art for many years in the North East, Angus and the Scottish Borders. I am a professional member of SSA, VAS and PAI and have been the recipient of a number of awards over the years including a travelling scholarship from art school and several prizes from RSA, VAS and PAI.
