Rebecca Perry

  • Ceramicist

Persistence Works

Rebecca graduated from Staffordshire University in 2018 with a First-Class BA (hons) in 3D Design: Ceramics. In 2019 she was the winner of the Peak District Artisans Young Emerging Artisan Award. She now has a studio in Sheffield at Yorkshire Artspace.

Rebecca's ceramic practice is driven by her expressive painting style, with the abstract marks influenced by shapes and lines within the landscape. She translates the colours and textures onto her pots using slip decoration, mono-printing and bold glazes.

To create her stoneware and porcelain vessels, Rebecca uses a combination of slip casting and hand building. The form is kept simple with curved sides to allow for the decoration to be the focal point of each piece. The interiors are glazed with rich, vibrant colours to give a contrast between the interior and exterior.

Each piece is made with function in mind, bringing rich hues and echoes of the landscape into the home.
