Vanessa Hogge

Biography

At once organic and ornate, spontaneous and stylised, Vanessa Hogge's decorative wallflowers and vessels bring a unique textural and visual dimension to any wall or table.

Working predominantly in porcelain, Vanessa crafts her one-off flowerheads and vessels in her studio in Cockpit Arts Holborn. Grounded by years of expertise as a ceramicist, she takes an instinctive, visceral approach to each piece, painstakingly sculpting every petal and anther by hand so that no two flowers are identical.

The efflorescent flowers are created in porcelain and black clay, and are fired to high temperatures to create brittle, ossified shades of white and lava-like black.

Inspired by her passion for all things botanical, and influences as diverse as Frida Kahlo, Indian miniature paintings and Marianne North, Vanessa breathes life into her clay in the form of dahlias, chrysanthemums, daisies, hydrangeas and daphne.
