Using stoneware, slips and glazes to ‘draw’ into the surfaces, Sharon approaches the clay as a fine artist. Hand-building slabs of clay; merging traditional making techniques with contemporary ceramics to make figurative sculpture.
Sharon Griffin uses clay to communicate a semi-autobiographical narrative; one which explores emotion, imagination and story-telling. Drawing upon her passion for psychology, Sharon uses her own experiences to explore the universal human condition, both as an internal and external dialogue.
Her work can be uplifting, joyful and slightly unnerving.
