Immersed in a deep appreciation for the natural world, Stephanie Cunningham draws profound inspiration from the untamed beauty of wild landscapes and a spiritual connection with the earth and sea. Her heart is particularly drawn to the enchanting allure of the west coast of Scotland, with its majestic mountains, serene sea lochs, soft mist, and ever-shifting play of light.
The ceramic forms she makes are stylised to focus on the power, balance, grace, elegance and movement of animals; as each pieces finds it's resting form and becomes a pause in time.
Equally captivating is West Cornwall, where Stephanie is based. Here, the dramatic coastline and ancient granite outcrops spark her imagination, suggesting the emergence of ancient animal forms from the very fabric of the land.
