Ali Tomlin

Ali Tomlin

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

Ali's work is a collection of thrown, uncluttered porcelain forms in a variety of colours and marks but always with her signature background of white porcelain and red maker's mark.

She throws and turns the pieces to a fine finish which, when unglazed and sanded, gives the porcelain a paper-like, tactile quality. Drawing on her design background she applies stains, oxides and slips, splashing or sponging away areas and inlaying lines with movement and spontaneity. Most decorating is done on the wheel to try and capture that feeling of movement on a static object and some pieces have the impression of endless landscape paintings wrapping around them.

All her work is both to look at and to use.

Ali is a selected member of the CPA. She is based near Farnham in Surrey.
