Jazz Drawings

Shirley Sheppard

Sculpture

"My sculptures bear the marks of the wood fires they have been subjected to.They have survived the flames they were created in and bear the natural and spontaneous scars associated with their making.

Many have been fired several times creating almost invisible layers of experience. Each one is unique having its own accidental character that can never be caught in bronze, stone or wood.

The oriental appreciation of ceramics is closer to my essence than the smoothness of western work."

My work is at blandscliff gallery and studio, 9 Blands Cliff, Scarborough and other selected galleries
