Linda Warrick has had a strong affinity to clay ever since, as a child, she first worked with it. She now works solely as a ceramic artist.
For the past 17 years, she has developed her work in porcelain, hand building semi-abstract birds. Each piece is burnished before firing, then smoked in sawdust. This results in the visual uniqueness of each piece along with an irresistible tectile appeal.
Important inspiration is drawn from constant observation of form, a 'way of seeing' both the large and the minute, combined with watching birds themselves, preferably at close range. Recent visits to the gannet colony on Bass Rock, Scotland and the Farne Islands, off the Northumberland coast, have provided Linda with a wealth of new material.
Linda's ceramic birds are characterized by their elegance and purity of form, and are held in private collections in Europe, North America and elsewhere.
