Jill throws vases and bowls on the wheel then decorates them with ridged holes inspired by colonies of barnacle shells. The pieces express the translucency, whiteness and beauty of porcelain.

Jill is sharing Catriona Stewart's studio space.
Catriona Stewart's studio is in the large granary above the historic Highfield Racing Stables near Malton. The virginia creeper-covered building itself is remarkable, with its red, painted doors, clock tower adorned with a weather vane and stables for forty four racehorses, strings of which can be seen going out in the mornings to the nearby gallops.
Jill Ford will have her new porcelain collection available and will be running demonstrations on how to make a textured porcelain wall piece at 11am each day.
