Fin Orrom Carr

To Fin, working with clay, is the most basic and natural art form. His interest is in finding ways to create forms that look as though they have grown within their environment, are a part of the place they inhabit, pieces that could have been around for a very long time.
He first studied ‘O’ level pottery at school in the 70’s, but moved away from ceramics to pursue other interests.
In 2004 he re-visited ceramics through adult education workshops in South East London and immediately fell in love with clay once more. He now splits his time between studio, clinic and family.
He loves the elemental and tactile nature of working with clay.
Natural forms, shapes and textures have always fascinated him. He is a collector of pebbles, stones and shells and an avid photographer of rocks and textures in landscapes both urban and countryside which inspires and informs his work
He often works with coloured clay that he colours himself with a variety of oxides, using a fairly rough clay body that has its own very distinct texture and character.
He also uses slips, oxides and glazes often applied over a number of firings to create depth and texture.
The visual and tactile quality of his work is essential to him, colours and textures that speak of pebbles on a beach, rocks on a river bed, ancient stones, old places.
He hand builds all his forms, every piece is unique and his garden work is all high fired, stoneware and frost proof.
