Melanie Hopwood


Melanie creates ceramic sculptures and jewellery pieces in response to geological features and craggy, rugged, landscape and coastline, weathered and shaped by nature, including humans. Clay is shaped and textured. Combinations of oxides, engobes, matt and crater glazes are applied in multiple kiln firings, making further reference to the dramatic processes of extreme cold, heat and weather which shape and mark our rock, our land, our earth.

Melanie runs ceramic workshops for children and adults from her studio, and also in schools, museums and community venues.

Melanie's studio is open to visitors by appointment, please contact her directly to arrange a visit.  Her work is also available to buy online   she offers click-and-collect as well as postal delivery.
