Artist statement - Judith Roberts


My current work combines traditional hand building techniques with more experimental ways of working with clay. I am intrigued by the versatility of porcelain paperclay; how it 'sticks' to itself, dry or wet with the simple use of slip as a glue. My platters and vessels are a combination of slabbed and press moulded clay with piped, impressed and transfer decorations giving a contemporary twist to work inspired by historical artefacts and architecture in Stoke on Trent.
