Window exhibition by Amanda Westbury At Gatehouse Arts

Amanda Westbury is a Gatehouse Studio artist who has a passion for working with clay. Her ceramic artwork series is inspired by Nature, landscapes and the changing seasons. In her artworks she tries to convey the fragility, colour and delicate sculptural form of plants and flowers, as well as the textures and contrasts in the natural landscape.

Her colour palette uses subtle earthy tones produced by the use of iron, cobalt, copper oxides and coloured slips, often combining these with bright glass fragments and composing the artworks using mosaic techniques.
