Tanya Gomez works in porcelain and uses a range of throwing, cutting and assembling techniques to create forms that capture the unique qualities of fluidity and movement, and evoke a sense of space. As forms, her works display the artists mastery of line, rhythm, balance, tension or colour, and have an impact both individually, and when displayed together in groups.
Tanya graduated with a BA Honours in Three dimensional Craft and Design from the University of Brighton in 2004, followed by an MA in Ceramics and Glass from the Royal College of Art 2010.

My work evolves from my observations of natural phenomena, dramatic landscapes and the shifting qualities of the sea. This inspiration is drawn from my experience of coastal living, and working on private yachts travelling round the globe, encountering diverse cultures, and absorbing the abstract qualities of colour and shape while at sea.
