Sandy Brown (England) in Colours, Figures, Form and Function


1946 Born in Hampshire, Great Britain
1969 – 73 Education at the Daisai Pottery, Japan

.... „Today it is hard to imagine the European ceramics scene without her. She is famous for her spontaneous, passionate use of clay and colours. Her almost provokingly simple use of form and her strong, energetic brush decorations feed from direct emotion, from confidence in her own intuition and from a portion of childlike anarchy she preserved for herself. Sandy Brown’s catalytic, liberating influence on European ceramics in the seventies and above all eighties must not be underestimated. At a time when European ceramics threatened to get stuck between Asiatic ideals and local traditions, her impetuous, lustful approach to the material demonstrated exciting new possibilities.“

Gabi Dewald, Editor, writing in KeramikMagazin, Germany 2000
