Penny Withers is a professional ceramist with a studio in Sheffield. She has spent a long time discovering and experimenting with throwing skills; composing on the wheel and constructing forms from thrown slabs. She enjoys the velocity of throwing and the residual energy it produces in the finished piece. The springiness in a thrown slab makes it strong and able to hold a shape to convey dynamism.
Her sculptural pieces are finished in monochrome satin glazes which reflect light, softly revealing form. Complementary layers of glazes are dipped, sprayed or poured over each other and fired in either oxidising or reduction kilns. By observing the way that glazes react with each other she suggests landscapes; mountains, lakes, clouds.
