Ali Tomlin creates a collection of thrown, uncluttered porcelain forms in a variety of colours. They all feature her signature background of white porcelain and red maker’s mark.

Ali throws and turns the pieces to a fine finish which, when unglazed and sanded, gives the porcelain a paper-like, tactile quality. Drawing on her design background she applies stains, oxides and slips. She splashes on or sponges away areas and inlays lines with movement and spontaneity. Most decorating is done on the wheel to try and capture that feeling of movement on a static object. Some pieces have the impression of endless landscape paintings wrapping around them. All her work is designed to be both decorative and functional.

“I have always drawn and designed and love the energy of random lines or marks. Anything has potential, found or seen. I draw and paint, alongside making pots. A simple line or mark can completely alter a piece. I enjoy how the same shapes repeated, but with very different decoration, can form a cohesive family.’
