Artist A-Z

Wendy Calder

Wendy is a local ceramicist living in Bristol and has been making and selling ceramics since 1996. After graduating from Bath Spa University in 1993 she backpacked round the World before starting as ceramics technician at the City of Bath College. She went on to lecture in Ceramics for 11 years until moving to America and Canada for her husband's work, settling back in Bristol at the end of 2012. She enjoys charitable work, fundraising for the Alzheimer's Society through her annual Open Studio and runs pottery classes, private lessons and children's parties in her studio at home.

About the work:
I love the motion of the potters wheel, the ball of clay becomes a vessel quite quickly. It's therapeutic and mesmerising at the same time. I use red and white earthenware clays to create functional ceramics. These colours give a lovely, natural background to the delicate botanical images produced by monoprint and scraffito techniques, each one slightly different in line and tone making them unique.

My favourite thing about being a ceramicist is that I'm lucky enough to teach and share my love and knowledge. The variety and standard of work my students produce in the four week courses makes me proud. Plus the realisation from them that it takes patience and time to get great results means a lot.
