Libby Bal­lard’s ce­ram­ics are in­spired by the colours and tex­tures of the coast

The Simple Things - - MARCH THINGS -

Us­ing pho­tog­ra­phy to cap­ture colour, shape and form, ce­ram­i­cist Libby Bal­lard then works with porce­lain and speck­led clay be­fore ap­ply­ing lay­ered glazes to cre­ate her home­ware. The re­sult cap­tures the move­ment and colours of the seashore of the Isle of Wight, where she grew up. We like the Speck­led serv­ing bowl, £46, and mini pot and spoon, £26, above. Hav­ing re­cently moved to Bath and into a stu­dio at The Pound Arts in Wilt­shire, Libby now of­fers pri­vate throw­ing classes and group work­shops so you can try her method your­self.
