Polly Fern is a illustrator, ceramicist and canary keeper.
Taking inspiration from local, historical and childhood stories, Polly illustrates and translates her work into ceramics. Each ceramic piece is handmade, finished and fired by Polly in her Norwich based studio. Using newspaper cuttings of her designs, they are collaged upon the clay. Polly paints over the paper with a pigmented slip. Once the slip has dried a little, she then peels the design away to reveal the resisted characters, then working back into the piece by painting and drawing into the clay, making each piece unique.
