Pat Short creates highly stylised stoneware pieces. Her work is influenced by her passion for the natural world and a desire to create pieces that reflect the beauty of forests, streams and oceans. Her current series of work is gas fired stoneware. She hand builds, using moulds she has constructed – or by coiling – then developing the pieces by pinching and decorating.
