After art school, Philippa de Burlet set up her first workshop in London. With some help from the Crafts Council she bought a kiln and a wheel and thirty years later she is still using the same equipment.
A few years ago she began to use porcelain, a change that has invigorated her practice and given her a thirst for more knowledge about this remarkable material. Each ‘raw’ pot gives her a sense of anticipation just as a blank piece of paper does. "I paint, trail, incise, print and stencil directly onto the unfired clay surface – a smooth, white inviting, curved surface – and although I have a plan, and possibly even a drawing – the ‘plan’ often changes on impulse".
