At North Street Potters in Clapham she acquired real life studio pottery skills, offered through a thorough learning experience, which included preparing clay, recycling clay, throwing, glaze making, kiln packing, quality control, studio health and safety etc.
Her work, mainly tableware, is decorated with her own graphic, often monochrome glazes of high gloss black and white. This allows her to explore the balance between the shape and surface. Her style is inspired by elegant Chinese, Korean & Japanese ceramic shapes.
She formed Debbie Randall Ceramics.com in 2019 and mainly works by commission.

    [post_content] => Eunice, a Camberwell graduate, specialises in porcelain, making both representative and functional pieces.
Her work involves combining thrown forms, hand building, mould making and lately, hand-made crochet/knitting dipped in coloured porcelain. This process allows the dipped crochet cotton to completely burn out in the kiln fire, leaving only the translucent porcelain skeleton of the piece. Finally, the use of dry high temperature glazes gives each piece an intricate character.
Her latest creation of hand made crochet dipped in porcelain slip is a revived return of those inspirational experiences while attending her degree in Camberwell college.
