Ingrid Murphy – the Irish/Welsh multi award winning ceramicist and lecturer from Cardiff School of Art & Design.
Her playful works combine augmented reality, internet of things, 3D printing and other computer technologies with traditional ceramic substances like bone china. “I like bringing people to ordinary objects through advanced technology,” said Murphy. “It’s just a matter of revealing what’s hidden in plain sight.”
Her Instagram feed often views the world through Grumpy Dog.
Jim Robison – the American Yorkshireman and all round clay enthusiast: author, tutor, CPA Fellow, former Chair of the Northern Potters Association, International speaker and demonstrator.
His work is usually slab built and slip decorated, often commissioned and include large-scale sculpture and architectural ceramics. He enjoys an experimental approach to making, combining personal construction techniques with unusual surface textures created through multiple layers of clay and colourful glazes. All pieces are stoneware, reduction fired in a gas kiln.
In addition, Jim offers residential courses in his Yorkshire studio in making, glazing, and extrusion techniques.
>> You may recognise Ingrid Murphy & Jim Robison as the skilful duo-masters of ceremony from the International Ceramics Festival in Aberystwyth.
Niek Hoogland – a well-known figure from the Netherlands. He has a huge reputation and can be seen at many Ceramic fairs, festivals and in and around Europe and especially here in the UK. From his home studio he runs tours, field trips and workshops.
His passion and energy is evident in his work, where he combines traditional throwing and slipware with a contemporary approach. Most excitingly he has promised us ‘something special’ for our Open Day… !!!
