Shirley Vauvelle . Quirky Sculptures

November 28, 2011

Shirley works in Scarborough and uses white earthenware and under-glazes to make components

and  small sculptures concentrating on layering colour and texture.

These are then assembled together with driftwood, wire, reclaimed maps, vintage magazines and other

interesting finds from local beaches.

One-off contemporary pieces are made which are either hung or freestanding sculptures.

Her inspiration comes from her garden, her love of the coast and the fun of creating objects that are

very individual and quirky, with a tale to tell.

Lovely work, I’d like to hear more about the stories behind the pieces.

Credits to, amongst others,  The Arts Market for their photos.

    These are so charming. I love the naive quality and the bleached coloring

      Thanks for your thoughts Hazel. The muted colours do make them more appealing because they look like they’ve come straight from the sea.
