Sharon Griffin



Using ceramic stoneware, slips and glazes to ‘draw’ into the surfaces, Sharon Griffin approaches the ceramic medium as a fine artist. Hand-building slabs of clay; merging traditional making techniques with contemporary ceramics to make highly emotive and expressive figurative sculpture. …’I use clay to communicate a semi-autobiographical narrative; one which explores emotion, imagination and story-telling.

Drawing upon my passion for psychology, I use my own experiences to explore the universal human condition, both as an internal and external dialogue. The sculptures represent a state of being; internal struggles of love, loss, displacement, vulnerability and strength…’
