Abigail Simpson

Abigail Simpson was born in 1964 and originally trained as an actress before going on to study ceramics. Simpson's work has been exhibited extensively in Britain and is represented in national and international private collections, including Australia, Saudi Arabia and the USA. Simpson's large ceramic vessels and "Bobble" pots (which have become her trademark), are hand coiled from stoneware clay and fired to 1280 degrees centigrade. Each pot is unique and takes between three weeks and three months to make, depending on the size. "I have worked with the theme of the vessel for some time now, developing it as an object beyond normal usage. My idea of a vessel is not simply as a working piece of apparatus but as an object which expresses raw energy and power. It is not an academic exercise in imitating the historical past ."
