Juliet Macleod - The Cloud Pottery
Brought up just over a mile from the Dorset coast I have come to realize that the sea has always drawn me to it: from the early days of playing with murky, rust streaked clay gleaned from Ringstead Bay; discoveries of sea urchins in deep turquoise Mediterranean waters; to my more recent holidays spent sketching on North Uist’s white sand beaches.
I make wheel thrown stoneware and porcelain pottery for functional and decorative use. I am influenced heavily by my surrounding marine environment and the colours and naturally occurring patterns that I find there. I also have an enduring fascination with post war design and illustration. Whilst I have an instinctive love of simplicity, I cannot also escape a deep-rooted desire to decorate – trying to balance expression and function is my challenge.
