“I’m inspired by the ever changing skies over Edinburgh and East Lothian where I live and work. Using ceramic tiles and painting with coloured clay slip, the process of capturing the light and atmosphere of theses immense skies is contrasted by working on a very small surface area of an unglazed bisque tile. My aim is to translate the feeling of an ever changing sky into a series of works that aim to visually convey the different light, colour, atmospheres and moods created by the weather in Scotland.”
Specialising in producing highly individual hand painted ceramic tiles she also produces beautiful prints and cards from her ceramic designs.
Splash backs and tile inserts for kitchens, bathrooms and fireplaces.
How the stormy skies over the Bass Rock inspired Esther to paint one of her large ceramic tile panels during the winter storm of 2018.
