Celia Dowson is a London based artist working in both ceramics and cast glass. Inspired by the movement in nature her work reflects the colours, the changing light, and mystery of the natural world. Porcelain vessels, embedded with mark and gesture, capture an evolving landscape. Fascinated by industrial processes Celia adapts traditional modelling and casting techniques to make bespoke pieces to use and display. Techniques used in both the making of glass and ceramics are crossed and reapplied so that unique forms and surface finishes are achieved.
