Jo Taylor studied ceramics at both Degree & Masters level at Bath Spa University. Her work is exhibited worldwide and is held in a number of public and private collections.
Her practice examines the relationship between artistry and architecture, creating unique pieces that move traditional ceramic skills from the functional, to the decorative, referencing the baroque and rococo.
Taylor’s disrupting of traditional techniques extends to colour; clay and porcelain are fired once, unglazed, in order for the material to communicate the marks, textures and surface without hindrance. Colouring the clay began in reference to Wedgwood; now taken further to encompass the full spectrum, it is central to recent works.
Composition of form is made instinctively during the build phase, a combination of technical skill, expression and drawing in three dimensions. Finished works can be free standing, wall hung or group assembly.
