The Witham

An exhibition of ceramics by Carol Metcalfe and paintings by Donna Slyfield.

Using a range of stoneware clays, Carol Metcalfe captures the essence of the North Yorkshire countryside via texture, coloured slips and ochre, overlaid with layers of her own plant ash glazes. From leaves to landscapes, this process leads to rich and complex surfaces, which continue to engage and fascinate the viewer. 

Donna Slyfield’s paintings emerge from a sensual connection to the natural environment. Developing into an impressionistic style, she seeks out those elements within the landscape that keep her entranced. She describes her process as responsive and intuitive, being in the moment and enjoys the emotional connection felt by those who see her work.
