Patterns in the Land Inspire Highly-Individual Functional Vessels

Inspired by patterns in the land by her studio on the Isle of Skye, ceramicist Patricia Shone creates highly individual, functional vessels in which the natural textures produced by clay reflect the formation and erosion in the geology of the land. She prefers hand-building, but also likes to use the wheel to bring a sense of energy and spontaneity to the work.
