Welcome To Towanpot
Lynnette Hare Forth
I make pots therefore I live,
Why make? Because I enjoy producing individual, unique and varied work, which is produced from the earth and the land around.
I love the shapes of Medieval pottery, Korean and Japanese, function is paramount within the use of a pot, but my leaning lately has become more open to producing work which reflects the visual side of me, causing a conflict of consciousness, I have come to the conclusion man has always expressed himself visually from the cave-man through time to the present, it’s a natural part of us.
Craft knowledge could be lost, through technology replacing the activity of human craftsmanship. It is important to learn from one another skills from the past. We should cherish the beauty and variety of the ceramic artist, for without that we become bland and boring. Creativity is an outlet for the soul, hopefully my pottery shows part of me I cannot hope to ascertain.
My pottery is mainly produced by using locally sourced clays from the neighbouring Newdowns quarry at St Agnes and I have managed to source some oxides for the range of glazes I use from within the vicinity of Porthtowan, Cornwall.
