Elaine Bolt is a ceramic artist living and working near the South Downs in East Sussex with a rapidly growing reputation for individuality and integrity.
She works with clay and mixed media, creating works and compositions guided by a sense of narrative and steeped in the context of her local surroundings. Her work includes sculptural work, hand-built wall pieces and thrown vessels, made in porcelain and stoneware and mixed-media.
The works are informed by colours and tones found in the landscape of the South Downs; featuring deep flint blacks, through soft grey stony glazes to ghostly chalk tones. Each individual work tells a story of the special landscape in which it is created.
Elaine has an MA in Ceramics from UCA Farnham and is an alumna of the Crafts Council's talent development programme. She has worked as a Lecturer on the BA Ceramics course at the University of Brighton.
Elaine's work has featured in a number of galleries in the UK and in Japan and Helsinki, and her work is held in a number of private collections here and overseas.
Check out Elaine's recent interview in Ceramic Review (issue 306) entitled Sculpture Vultures in which she speaks to 5 ceramic sculptors about the lure of sculptural forms.
