IN CONVERSATION WITH: Camilla Webb Carter

on
4th January 2019

 

Inspired by optical illusion and geometric shapes, these bold and daring ceramic works are products of London-based artist Camilla Webb Carter. Having studied ceramics at Camberwell College of Art her studio was set up in 2011, from where she not only produces works for public display and for private collections, but she also runs pottery workshops and courses. Her works include modular wall installations, and freestanding or hanging vessels, her signature being the intricate marbled surface designs seen on much of her work.

 

Where did your passion for ceramics come from?

Fortunately, I did it at school and I had a really nice art teacher, GCSE I think. Actually she wasn’t that nice, but she really pushed me! So I did loads of organic stuff and just got really into it from there. Then I did A-Level with ceramics followed by an art foundation during which I didn’t do any ceramics, so I had a bit of a gap for four years. Then I decided I wanted to go back to it and so completed a degree at Camberwell Art School.

 

 

You produce some unusual shapes not really seen in the ceramics world; where does your inspiration for your geometric pieces come from?

I don’t know how it came about… I’m not into maths really. Probably architecture, and seeing Bridget Riley in the Tate Modern and Tate Britain. So yeah, patterns and making them into 3D ceramics. Actually London has a lot of other ceramicists and potters and lots of really great shows, so I just go to them as well. The art galleries as well – it’s got so much.

 

 

Where are your favourite places in London? (This can include your studio!)

Well, I’m not sure about work, I do love it in here [in the studio], just to have time to myself. But if not, it generally revolves around food, getting coffees… Maltby Street Market – I love a jaunt around there… and walking everywhere in London, through the parks and buildings and across the river.

 

 

Any particular favourite park?

Burgess Park, probably. Or South Bank. South London! Because I live in South London, I’m perhaps biased.

 

A big thank you to Camilla Webb Carter for speaking to us. You can check out her website here.
