Melanie Keevil makes abstract stoneware wall panels that have been inspired by the colours, surface textures and weathered architectural details of the hilltop towns and mountains of Provence and the rock formations and coastlines of the Cornish and Welsh landscapes.
The wall panels are layered with richly coloured slips and glazes and then fired to 1260° in an electric kiln in the artist’s Birmingham garden studio.
Speaking about her work, Melanie explains “I hope to give a sense of place but also to leave my work open to the viewer’s own interpretation so that they can draw on their own experience and meaning.”
