Through her sculptures ceramic artist Isobel Higley intends to evoke a sense of positivity in her surroundings. Higley's distinctive illustrative style, combined with a pleasant fusion of humour and fantasy, creates artworks with a strong narrative. Embodying inviting and tactile forms, Higley encourages her audience to interact with her sculptures and domestic work.
Isobel Higley uses sustainable processes in her practice wherever possible to reduce negative impact on the environment: In my studio I make my working process environmentally sustainable, which includes recycling and reusing waste clay. The reclaim process means that the colour and texture of the clay body can vary between each work, with each piece embodying unique characteristics based on this layered process
A graduate from BA(Hons) Contemporary Craft, Falmouth University, Higley wrote her dissertation on 'An Environmentally Aware Investigation into a Contemporary Sustainable Ceramic Practice'.
