CLAY SCULPTURE

Robyn’s style ranges from symbolic, through stylised, to realistic, and centres round the human form because of her deep passion for people and humanness. The sculptures have a rawness that makes them very intimate: she leaves the clay unglazed so as to convey the interior experience of being human. Her use of coloured slips suggests her fascination with colour ... and sometimes she uses oil paints as a bringing together of sculpture and painting.

The clay used is a very strong raku suitable for in- or outdoors. She fires her work in her own kiln and can change the colour of the clay by adjusting the amount of oxygen fed to the flame (reduction). The flames fill the whole kiln and caress each piece in unique ways, so the end product includes the element of chance.
