Shirley Vauvelle - Flower Stem 03

Shirley creates wall hung or freestanding sculptures, using white earthenware to hand build flower components, small creatures , birds and fish. Texture is embossed into the surface. Under glazes and oxides are applied to give layers of colour. These are then assembled together with driftwood, wire, reclaimed maps, vintage magazines and other interesting finds from the local beaches.

Her inspiration comes from her continually evolving garden, her love of the coast, country walks with her dog and the fun of creating objects that are a little bit different and quirky. Influences emerge from Scandinavian art and design and naïve art.  She likes the idea of layering texture and colour to create pieces that are totally individual, each has a little tale to tell.

” I do not restrict myself to brushes to work with. I much prefer to use things that are to hand if they give me the right quality of mark making such as sticks, wire, household brushes, cardboard and my fingers. “

There is a portion of a map on top of the piece of driftwood that is from a map of Purbeck and shows Church Knowle
