"I'm Judi Smith. A self taught clay artist with an insatiable desire to learn, share and experiment along a clay art journey.

It started 20 years when a friend offered me a handful of clay and told me to go away and make something. Faces and figures were the first interest. Distractions of other forms came and went but I have returned to the beginning with the addition of the joojoo range.

For intense firing excitement, I love to raku.
For sculptural work I use an electric kiln.

You're invited to view Cup Cakes and Chocolate to learn a bit about me and Fired Up to learn about what inspires me about clay, and some stories and images from exhibitions and conferences I have been involved with.
The Clay Art Gallery of past and present clay artworks is under construction, but in this section you can see what I am currently working on, and some of the inspirations behind them.
Also check out the Clayzee Magazine, a place where I can share some of the interesting bits and bobs from the world of clay.

“What I am is but a collection of where I have been and what I have experienced.

What I am now is not what I was then. I am recreating me in the moment as you are too – collecting experiences that will reflect who ‘I am’ tomorrow.”"

Martine PINSOLLE est née à Bordeaux, France, en 1944. Elle vit et travaille sur la Côte Basque, France. Son thème d'inspiration principal est la figure humaine : nus, corps, portraits, personnages, attitudes, regards.


Voici comment elle explique sa démarche artistique : "Peintre d’atelier, le dessin est pour moi l’étape essentielle de la maturation de l’œuvre. Les images et leur composition s’imposent souvent d’elles-mêmes, prennent la forme d’une évidence sereine ou tourmentée que le dessin inscrit dans la réalité. Plus que la couleur qui envahit la toile, le trait incise, maintenant l’ambiguïté fondamentale de l’image picturale. Le trait reste la limite infrangible entre le dit et le non-dit.
Parfois, le seul jeu de la main confronte l’aléatoire et la nécessité d’une émotion ancienne ou récente dont le corps est l’ostentation violente ou résignée, mais jamais impudique. Dans le portrait, questionnement renouvelé sur l’identité, la couleur donne un sens à cette humanité.
Les natures mortes sont pour moi des temps de pauses attentives et d’interrogation du réel qui me permettent de ne plus être au centre du propos."
