Graduating recently from Falmouth University with a BA (Hons) Contemporary Crafts has been an infinitely life-changing experience for the contemporary ceramicist.
Cheryl Cork is drawn to the organic qualities of clay and prefers working with porcelain for its translucence and its fragile appearance that belies its strength. Her work provides a visual vocabulary to her emotions and personal experiences. These porcelain slipcast vessels have an emotional intensity. The Dysfunctional Family forms are crumpled and broken; the Disfigured pieces are scarred and damaged. They have a quiet beauty and strength. Pushing boundaries is challenging but rewarding.
