For as long as she can remember Gin Durham has derived an enormous amount of pleasure and satisfaction from the pure acts of creating and making.
For a number of years Gin worked as a graphic designer, project manager and artist, but established her ceramic practice after graduating in 2011. For Gin, ceramics is an exciting and rewarding material, one with which she is forging a lasting relationship, enhanced by her firm grounding of mixed media and graphic experience.
The inspiration for thid new body of work stems from traditions of folklore and fairy stories and nursery rhymes. Gin has long been fascinated by stories and how they have endured the test of time, repeated by generations. Her hope is that her work in turn, will have the power to trigger associations, images and stories in the mind of the viewer
