Louise Dunning’s colourful, abstract designs are partly inspired by the Derbyshire landscape.
She is particularly influenced by the footpaths, bridle paths and tracks that have been created over time and through continuous use. She is also inspired by the plough and furrow lines, hedges, field edges and woods that are created and managed in the countryside.
Using aerial images or memory to map some of her favourite walks, she scores these lines directly onto the clay, mirroring the landscape but producing colourful, abstract designs.
Louise has also recently been producing one-off commissions based on a person’s favourite landscape, walk or run. Please get in touch with her via Claywirks if you are interested in commissioning a tailor made piece.
