Christine Cummings *NEW*


Christine Cummings Artist At The Acorn Gallery, PocklingtonAbout Christine Cummings:-

Christine began making animals whilst studying ceramics at Lancashire  Polytechnic, which to begin with was purely pig studies, spending a lot of time at agricultural shows in the rare breeds tent studying their characters etc.  

Many years later Christine still makes pigs along with a whole host of other animals, of which the source material is never far away - a cow in a field, a scratching chicken or a dog racing down the street.  

Sketching from life is a very big part of her work making her study the subject at great length. The pieces are all hand crafted in earth stone clay being finished either by Raku or smoke firing.
