Grace McCarthy has been making ceramics for the past eight years. She studied at Camberwell College of Art in south London and Clay College in Stoke. Grace is a ceramics tutor at Turning Earth, the first dedicated open-access ceramics studio in London, and a member of the Ceramics 274 collective.
Most of her pieces are oxidized-fired but she hopes to explore reduction firing and eventually soda firing. “A lot of what influences my work,” she says, “is the raw clay and the firing process; the relationship between both of these elements is what excites me about ceramics.”
