Rebecca Perry

Rebecca's ceramic practice is driven by her expressive drawings, with the abstract marks being influenced by abandoned spaces and graffitied walls. She looks at the natural and urban landscape and how organic matter and rusted metal are juxtaposed. The bold strokes of paint and scratched markings relate to her two-dimensional mark making and
the energetic, abstract painting style that she has developed. The marks and lines that are produced become gestural as she uses the surface as a vehicle for her drawing.

Rebecca creates one-off earthenware and porcelain vessels by combining industrial methods of slip casting batch production with expressive surface pattern. To produce the plaster of Paris moulds that she casts from, she begins with a plaster model that will be carved or turned to create a negative mould. These slip cast pieces are simple in form, which allows for the bold application of decoration using slips, splashes of glaze and enamel. She continuously layers different marks between three or four firings until the desired result is achieved, masking with each layer to define areas on the pieces. The interior of the pots are glazes with vivid hues, pops of sun yellow and deep reds to give warmth.

Rebecca is based in Chesterfield.
