Cindy Gibson

I am a ceramic artist and potter with an interest in pattern, colour, historical ceramics and the natural environment. Lustrously light, strong and versatile porcelain clay combined with a melding of traditional and contemporary design elements defines my style.

I fire my porcelain to a hot cone 10 – approximately 1285 degrees Celsius. At this temperature the clay is fluid, and if thin, delicate and translucent. But when thicker, porcelain is also robust and durable. It is useful for a wide range of applications and its whiteness gives me clear beautiful colours.

My works is led by design; ideas often start with a concept for use, or the desire to express an idea. I use colour and carefully considered surfaces to evoke mood, endeavoring to marry these components into strong complimentary forms.
The elements that inspire my sculptural work include the wondrous fractal geometry of nature, the power of weather and beauty found in small details of life. In Victoria we are blessed with an amazing variety of flora and fauna - I particularly love birds. These themes also spill over into my functional domestic ware and into the stylistically in-between realm of pieces for the garden.

I have a Fine Arts (honours) degree from the University of Manitoba and a Pottery Apprenticeship done at Toepferei am Hof, Heidelberg, Germany. Later, in England I worked at Farnham College and developed the studio practice that continues today. After 10 years away, I returned to Canada and settled in Victoria in 2003.
