Pat Dalton

I have been a potter for many years. My work is inspired by rock pools and the North East coastline. Dishes are multi-glazed, and fired to stoneware (1250 c) in an electric kiln in my Garage. I use glass to enhance the effect, and each piece is individual.

Shirley Anne Doyle

I live in a village 6 miles from Scarborough. Over the last few years, I have been more involved in producing work with the combination of glass and clay. My work is then mounted onto a canvas and able to be hung on a wall. I enjoy experimenting with the different colours of glass to produce different textural patterns. I take my inspiration from nature eg. animals, birds, plants and landscapes. I love bright colours. I also make small animals , birds etc to be able to go out into a garden or stay indoors
