DEBS PAINE

When painting my main medium, oil, is applied with pallet knives or brushes to achieve different textures. I apply the oils directly onto and mix it on the canvas. I create additional texture by scraping off dried paint and adding additional layers of paint.

I use both hand building and throwing technics to create my ceramic pieces. When hand building I use a variety of methods using moulds and balloons to form the basic pieces, which are then embellished and glazed. The basic shape is made by rolling out the clay and forming it around a blown up balloon, as the clay dries it shrinks and over time the balloon deflates causing cracks to appear in a random way, embellishments, curls and feet are added. These pieces are best glazed simply, I use Old Pewter giving a metallic feel to each piece. I have experimented with adding copper foil and copper wire, both are added after the glaze firing.

Stained or leaded glass is a technical medium. Glass is cut into the desired shapes, the lead came is added then soldered together, the piece is sealed with putty and finally blackened using a chemical patina or grate polish. The smaller pieces are created using copper foiled glass which are then soldered together. These can be blackened using the same techniques that are used for the leaded glass or left with the silver colour of the solder.

My work is an eclectic mix of ceramics, glass work and painting. I am inspired by nature, architecture and traveling.
