Sandy Segal, has made a range of slab pots to coincide with the Picasso and Modern British Art Exhibition at the Tate Britain.
Having discovered Sandy via the Craft Central website, the Tate Britain buyer felt her work 'would tie in well with the Picasso paintings.' The original commission of 20 pots (exhibited February 2012) sold out fast, leading to Tate Britain ordering 60 more!
Working from her her purpose-built studio in her Clerkenwell loft apartment, Sandy hand builds all of her pots and decorates with glazes and slips which she makes herself. She says that she 'loves clay as a material and tries to retain that earthy quality in her work.'
Check out her work at the Tate Britain until the exhibition ends on the 15 July 2012.
