Harriet enjoys working intuitively in an experimental and uninhibited way, using a variety of materials such as fibreglass, wire, twigs, clay bodies and slips. She finds the physicality of clay the perfect vehicle for expressing her ideas.
The thought process behind the making is emotionally and spontaneously driven, inspired by the dynamics of relationships and nature and the balance and fragility that this creates. Coherence and clarity come through the process of making.
The evolving, anthropomorphic and abstract forms, create an evocative body of work that is dynamic yet vulnerable, achieving an allusive, ethereal quality. Harriet would like her work to be free from restrictions yet firmly grounded in reality, the evolving endless possibilities of the clay form and the process of making is part of the excitement for her.
Harriet is based in London and trained as a Fine Artist, followed by a career as an Art Director in Film and TV. Harriet returned to work as a Ceramic artist after a short break.
