Angela Evans No.2 tile

After a dozen years in high-rise New England House, Angela moved her studio to a wooden shed she has built in her sisters’ garden where her fruit and vegetable tiles grow alongside the apples and onions; the butterfly, flower and fish plaques busily evolve by the herbaceous borders; and her amoebae designs multiply within spitting distance of their mutating brethren in the compost heap.

She has also taken to the hills for some inspiration, making soap dishes which don’t take themselves seriously while also insisting everyday objects can be intriguing works of art and useful too.

Angela takes plaster casts from life to capture textures and form and uses found objects – bits of broken clocks or golf tees – to make marks and patterns. She loves drawing into and building up textures on clay and then covering them in highly transparent glazes which pick up every mark: not all intentional.

She has recently completed a commission for Kettle Crisps, adding parsnip, sweet potato and beetroot to her vegetable repertoire.
