Lesley Warner ceramics

Working with iron-rich terracotta clay, my work draws its inspiration from the landscape: from the elements, from the feeling of moving through water, wind and, increasingly, the sea.

Now based in Scarborough in North Yorkshire, my journey into clay started aged 39. After a successful career in media relations and communications I decided that what I really wanted to do was be a potter and started studying ceramics for the first time.

Many years later and with a number of years teaching ceramics under my belt my attention has now turned to focus on my own creative practice.
