Tricia Thom

Her work takes references from her love of a Japanese aesthetic.  Teapots and moon jars speak to me as symbols of community and ritual.

Tricia work’s predominantly in porcelain on the wheel.  Some surfaces are punctuated rhythmically inside and out, expressing the fine translucency of the material, others are treated with bold, calligraphic brush strokes and stripes which contrast with the conformity of form.

She studied ceramics at Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen then worked in the ceramics industry, making and decorating pots in a production pottery in the Highlands. She went on to train as a teacher and taught art and ceramics in schools and colleges, while at the same time making my own range of ceramics.  After a break from my ceramics practice to focus on family life, She has returned to making and continues to develop her work.

She has been a resident artist at the Adam Pottery, Edinburgh since 2013.  She also work’s from her new home studio and teach’s in and around the Edinburgh area.
