Ceramic jug by Victoria Reynolds
Where are you from originally, and where are you now?
Originally I am from Wigan, but I moved to the Ceiriog Valley near Llangollen in 2004, and I love it!
How did you get started as an artist?
I completed a degree in Fine Art Ceramics at Leeds in 1998, and always did my clay work as a hobby, but in 2006 I went self employed with my ceramics.
What medium/media do you work in?
I specialise in ceramics, but also do educational workshops in other mediums.
How would you describe your work?
I make mainly sculptural ceramics out of functional forms, but do make the occasional functional piece.
What are your influences and inspirations? Do you draw inspiration from your local area?
I am inspired by issues of family life, domestic rituals and childhood memories.
Where has your work been shown?
I have exhibited at Theatr Clwyd, Denbigh Library, Rhyl Library & Gallery, Wrexham Arts Centre and have had work in Down to Earth in Whitchurch.
