DENISE LYNCH – Ceramic Artist
Growing up on the shores of Nova Scotia, there was always a patch of dark red clay to be found when the tide went out. I’d dig it up, take it home and make gifts for those I cherished. Today, I continue in that tradition and create timeless pieces to share with you.
My pieces are inspired by rhythmic patterns of scrolling and interlacing lines with finishes that invoke an old world aesthetic.
During the making process, as forms are created, they call to complementary shapes and decoration. I would state that “the piece designs itself, I just show up”. Bronze, gold, silver, satin, charcoal, old white and mother of pearl are among my favorite glazes as they compliment the timelessness of the scrollwork designs.
I am a juried member of Craft Nova Scotia, member of the Nova Scotia Potters Guild and Creative Pictou County.
