Cheryl Cork

Cheryl Cork began creating from her home studio in 2015 after completing a BA Hons. Degree in Contemporary Crafts at Falmouth University. Initially the approach was to express the emotions with forms produced in slip-cast porcelain. Subsequently a desire to experiment with handbuilding appealed more than repetitively reproducing the same forms. The work is spontaneous, rather than planned and sketched in advance. Nature is a great inspiration and recent simple sculptural organic forms made from grey stoneware and white porcelain have been inspired by the geology of rocks and pebbles. There is a constant desire to improve technical skill, and to produce a well-balanced vessel with stillness and movement. Much attention is given to surface texture. A recent addition is the Japanese style of kurinuki which allows for spontaneity in forming more organic shapes.
