Jo Taylor - Ceramics

Jo Taylor's ceramics are modeled by the light with dramatic deep shadows drawing rhythms and curves. There is a grand gesture reminiscent of a Rococo ornament and architectural plasterwork. She works from potters wheel to composing looping constructions in smooth white porcelain or dense black clay.

Selected Exhibitions: Holburne Museum, Bath; British Ceramics Biennial, Stoke on Trent; COLLECT, Saatchi Gallery. Selected Awards; 2014 Nominated by Yorkshire Sculpture park for Perrier Jouet Arts Salon prize. Elected member of Royal British Society of Sculptors; 2013 Shortlisted for V&A ceramicist in residence.

Taylor's Yunomi - Celadon Series in porcelain and (Noir) in black stoneware have each been molded to the hand as part of an edition variable of 50 pieces. A yunomi (Japanese) is a form of teacup, typically made from a ceramic material, being taller than wide, with a trimmed or turned foot.
Sculpture - The making process influences the outcome; the connection with the raw material is intrinsic to the shapes & marks made. Clay pieces are made & marked with tools as the potters wheel rotates until a collection of
loops & curls of varying sizes is amassed.
