Tamryn Howard: ceramic artist

Tamryn Howard: ceramic artistI've always had an interest in the arts and crafts, dabbling in all sorts of mediums over the years. Ultimately this led to me getting a Bachelor of Fine Arts.

Since then, I've continued experimenting with different mediums and also started up a small art gallery within Absolution here in Ōtautahi.

I currently work full-time as a leadlighter and then in my spare time I create works in ceramics, glass and occasionally upcycling old furniture.

With my ceramic pieces I really like the method of throwing on the wheel. It's quite fascinating seeing the effects that small movements have on the clay.

I also like to incorporate sand from local beaches and currently use sand I've gathered from beaches in New Brighton, Akaroa and the Catlins.

You can see more of work on my website.
