Maggie Barnes

Maggie has had a life-long interest in marine life and paleontology, which came from childhood explorations with her father who was a fisherman, specifically along the Yorkshire Coast.  Her passion about this type of nature is represented through her porcelain white work. She adds a smooth, fine texture to her pieces, as porcelain is described as initially a form without form or colour. She has never intended to "copy" nature, but rather capture something similar to the original inspiration.
