Hannah Tounsend

Biography

The repeatedly worked surfaces of Hannah's clay and subtly layered monoprints are inspired by the sea-washed, weatherworn landscape of the British coastline.
She creates vessel which are formed using a hybrid making technique of slip-casting and throwing. Within an open plaster mould she builds layers of printed, poured and painted casting slips, overlaying colours on the porous surface. These designs are incorporated into a cast shell of clay, before mould and cast are fixed centrally to a throwing wheel. A partially thrown cylinder of plastic clay is joined to the cut rim of the still-moulded cast and fully thrown out. The presence of the mould allows the formation of a flange of clay that accentuates the join and breaks away in pleasingly irregular fragments as the piece shrinks and pulls inwards.
