Vivienne Ross

Staffordshire based ceramicist. Maker of slip decorated earthenware.

‘I make ceramics that combine hand-processes such as press-moulding, coiling and throwing with a love of illustration. The pieces are decorated using coloured slips, paper stencils, brushwork and sgraffito.’

Stunning, playful depictions of everything that make us human, playful ‘nudies’ floating above, friends, bottles of wine the odd bottle of gin and the family black Labrador. Any piece from Viv raises a smile and her work is collected widely due to the evident skill, the wonderful colour palletes and the simple feeling of joy that comes with every piece.

“It is a joy to be hidden, and disaster not to be found.”
