Beth creates contemporary ceramics that are a joy to handle. She creates interesting forms out of nonfunctioning materials such as plaster, mouldable plastics, modelling clays and latex, then using the technique of slip casting replicates these forms in porcelain to create functional wares. Her Touch Tableware is intended to be handled and each object is carefully designed to be tactile or playful. Beth enjoys the challenge of tableware; making items that are as satisfying to use as they are lovely to look at. Her turquoise and white colour palette is minimalistic and the absence of further decoration places emphasis on form and function.
Her designs were selected for exhibit in the 21st Century Showcase at Manchester Art Gallery upon graduating and were also selected to represent Manchester School of Art’s class of 2013 via the online portfolio MMU Originals – http://www.mmu.ac.uk/mmuoriginals/
Beth graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2013 with a BA(hons) degree in Three Dimensional Design and was presented with two awards at the Manchester School of Art degree show.
Based in the North West of England.
Beth’s ceramics are a tribute to her late grandmother Margaret who introduced her to clay as a child.
