Born and raised in Namibia, Bridget's adventurous and creative spirit has taken her around the world, observing and absorbing the art, nature and vibrant cultures on offer. During her travels she was able to attend pottery and sculpture classes in Cape Town, New York, Charleston S.C. and Sydney.
Bridget's work blends alternative glazing techniques with figurative shapes showcasing the beauty of the human body. Her glazes portray textural colouring to portray the unique landscapes seen throughout her exploration of the world.
Bridget currently lives in the Northern Beaches of Sydney.
Bridget has a 'love/hate' relationship with Raku Firing. It's exciting but you don't always know how it will turn out.
Raku firing is an ancient Japanese ceramic technique that has been used for centuries.
Pots are taken from the kiln while they are still glowing red hot, and placed in a bin with combustible material such as sawdust or newspaper. Pieces with no glaze on them will have a matte black coloring. The glazed areas will have cracking.
