Natasha Daintry

Natasha is a ceramic artist using porcelain.  Her work explores scale, space, risk, movement and colour.  She sees colour as wilderness, alive and unsettling like the sea.  She uses repetition and multiplicity in her groups of pots, influenced by the sculptural possibilities of mass-production she observed while working with the ceramics industry in Stoke-on-Trent.

 

While studying Japanese at Cambridge University, she lived with a family in Tokyo who introduced her to pots and the language of materials.  Her interest in ceramics continued on graduating, with night classes in London which led to a formal training at the Surrey Institute of Art & Design in Farnham and the Royal College of Art.

 

Natasha recently finished a permanent installation of porcelain pots for Chatsworth House based on the Fibonacci sequence.
