Clay Collective - Oxfordshire Art Weeks
Elizabeth Murphy is an emerging ceramic artist based in Oxfordshire whose practice is based around exploring narratives woven with threads of history, literature, music, nature and the human condition.
Each piece is an investigation where no surface is the same and no two works are alike. Vessels become backdrops for explorations in texture and surface pattern achieved through hand building methods as well as glazing and firing techniques. Working intuitively and expressionistically, Elizabeth's work is often characterised by rich colours and complex glazing giving the pieces a depth within the surface decoration that enhances the form.
