Sally Mills combines clay and glass to produce unique, handmade art. Intricate, detailed textures are her main inspiration together with the relationship that these textures have when they encounter water.
Working with the contrasts that these two elements create - the dry textured clay and the fluidity, iridescence and depth of colour of the molten glass - creates stunning results.
Her work is a storyboard - connecting with evocative memories, allowing the viewer to revisit a treasured location, emotion or experience.
Travelling and photographic studies of coastal areas from around world is a passion of hers. The memories from these trips inform and inspire her work.
Sally studied Ceramics at Middlesex University. She was taught by Mo Jupp, Emmanuel Cooper and Kate Malone (the ‘Great British Throwdown’ judge). Sally was apprenticed to Kate and it was her bravery with colour and texture that was a significant influence on Sally’s creative development.
