Potter of the Month

7 July 2019 - 31 July 2019

Erichsen’s ceramic forms are influenced by her surroundings; exploring themes of habitat and the interaction of form and self with the environment, primarily through the creation of shadows.  The soft and hard qualities of porcelain clay are reflected in the juxtaposition of an undulating, organic edge and a linear form thus creating an interesting tension within a piece.  The element of chance occurring during the firing process is embraced in her pieces, often resulting in an unexpected softening of an otherwise rigid form.
 
Shadow, light and dark, geometric pattern and repetition are constant sources of fascination.  These elements are translated into her work through mark-making, surface perforation and cut-out forms.  Each piece is individually handmade.  Porcelain clay is her preferred medium as the characteristic translucency heightens the interplay of light and dark in a piece.  She creates sculptural forms and porcelain jewellery.
