Louise Cook, Shoreline Stoneware: Island Life Distilled

Apr 9, 2021

“I make hand-built stoneware sculptures, all themed around the sea. I’m inspired by the coastline around our island, and draw inspiration from the unique Hebridean environment. Water is never very far away, so there is always a shore to explore. Fresh water loch or coastal, there is always lots of inspiration. I use lots of natural sea fragments, to provide delicate textures on the surface on the clay. The majority of my work is stoneware fired. Eaval, North Uist’s highest hill, is featured quite a bit in my work too.”
