Pinch Pots.

April 15, 2015


More pinch pots in the making, I turned them over so that you could see some of the mark-making techniques I’ve been experimenting with. Hopefully they will have been biscuit fired by next week so that I can play around with glazes.




Turning Earth.

April 4, 2015





I started a ceramics course at Turning Earth twelve weeks ago and I’m seriously hooked. Starting with the basics, I’ve made a small selection of ‘pinch pots’ and a ‘coil pot’ vase. I loved it so much I’ve signed up for another twelve weeks, this time I will be focusing on ‘throwing’, which I think is going to be a bit trickier than the hand-building. There is a sale today of the members work at 1pm, so if you are Hackney based I would strongly recommend paying a visit. Click on the link above for details.

Good Friday in Rye.

Cutting Out!

February 26, 2015


I’ve been spending the last two days cutting out flowers for a private commission. It’s going to be very colourful!

ping‘Ping’ Sharon Elphick 2014.

This is the latest collage, based on geometry using pages from a 1958 and a 1968 copy of Paris Match. These works are definitely inspired by my love of the Bauhaus movement, I think they’d make lovely textile designs. I named it ‘Ping’ because someone had written the word in pencil, on one of the pages.

This collage has been created entirely from one page of a vintage magazine. I found this copy of Paris Match, from 1958 at Spitalfields Antique Market.

One Green Square

I will be showing this collage at the East London Design Show, starting this Thursday. It’s been a while since I’ve had the opportunity to show my own work, for the past seven years my attention had been focused on the retail space on Columbia Road. However, after a couple of months at the new studio I am getting into my creative flow and enjoying the results. I’m loving the simplicity of the geometry and the subtle colours and tones that I find in the vintage magazines.

Loose Fit

I completed this collage yesterday, I seem to be getting slower, always so much to do. For this artwork I used a copy of Paris Match from the 4th of May 1968. I was born in November 1968 so it’s one of my favourite years, and these are some of my favourite colours. I’ve just put it up for sale here.
