Tanya’s work looks at large thrown vessels; the pieces are thrown in parts and assembled to produce larger surfaces that are animated through throwing and glazing.
Working in porcelain, she uses a range of approaches in her throwing to create forms that will capture qualities of fluidity, movement, and provide a sense of space. Tanya makes these works conscious of natural phenomena and dramatic landscapes, absorbing colour, shape, and the diverse qualities of the sea. She has always lived by the sea and has a studio on the south coast. All of these influences inspire her work.
