Visit artist's studios and venues throughout the PE postcode region

Denise Brown

My stoneware ceramic work draws inspiration from the British coastline and from my surrounding Fenland landscape. I hand build, using slabs and coils and my coastal and wildlife designs are incised into the clay by hand.  I have been developing new work over the last year, using warm red terracotta clay and decorating in a more abstract style, mark making on clay and using my own made coloured slips. The pieces are inspired by the fenland landscape, and the many farm drove walks that I have taken over the last year.  I also experiment with pit firing techniques, and we will be demonstrating this process over the Open Studio weekend. Christine and Brian Withall will also be in residence, with raku firing demonstrations outside all weekend (weather permitting).

Exhibiting from my spacious pottery studio which is located on our family farm in Benwick, we are surrounded by the rural open Fenland landscape. On your visit you are welcome to walk the re-wilded meadow at the front of the house, through which a path has been mowed to view the indigenous plants and insects.

This year I will be joined by Debbie Davis (www.debbieonthebrink.com) who will be showing her beautiful individual handbuilt ceramics, decorated in a variety of methods and demonstrating her love of drawing. Christine Withall will be exhibiting a selection of her stunning ceramics, including her African ladies and tactile pinch pots (www.sunspots.co.uk).  Brian Withall, will be exhibiting his exciting experiments in glasswork. Lesley Adolphson (www.Lesleyadolphson.com) will be showing her striking handmade silver jewellery.

Refreshments of tea, coffee, cold drinks and homemade cake will also be available. Plenty of outdoor seating should you wish to just come and watch the demonstrations.
