Ali Tomlin

Ali Tomlin

Ali Tomlin has always drawn and designed and loves the energy of random lines or marks, from a sketch, painting or found on stones or peeling paint. She enjoys how just a simple line can completely change the feeling of a piece.

Her work is a collection of thrown, uncluttered porcelain forms. She throws and turns the pieces to a fine finish which, when unglazed and sanded, gives the porcelain a paper-like, tactile quality, where she applies her marks as spontaneously as possible. Preferring to work on the dry, chalky surface, she uses stains, oxides and slips, splashing or sponging away areas and inlaying lines, creating pleasingly imperfect and unpredictable marks. Sometimes this results in simple graphic marks and sometimes never ending abstract, landscape paintings or cityscapes, wrapping around the pots.
