Another thing I saw in Radiance in Hebden Bridge. Jo Heckett’s clay things are adorable!
“If you were a fly on the wall at Jo’s studio, you would be forgiven for thinking you were at a bakery! She uses similar techniques to making biscuits – rolling out the finest porcelain clay into slabs and then using a selection of cookie cutters and templates to cut out a variety of shapes. These are then stamped with a rich array of textures using vintage stamps and found objects, before being fired in one of Jo’s kilns. They are then glazed in her favourite soft glossy colours to create a lovely mix’n’match batch of goodies.”
