Rebecca English - Ceramic Artist
Mirva member Rebecca is a potter living in Penwith, Cornwall and is deeply inspired by Cornwall's wild scenery in her work.
Rebecca studied art at Portsmouth then moved to Ireland where she painted extensively.
After the birth of her daughter,she moved to Cornwall and fell in love with clay, attending classes at Penwith art school,learning and exploring different techniques and discovering her own styles for creating with clay and never looked back!
Rebecca now works from her home studio which she built up herself. Her work is mostly wheel-thrown and her delicate style often favours a sgraffitio method, which involves etching designs into the clay.
