Blue Pear #1, glazed low fire ceramic, gold luster 7in h x 4in diameter
Lyn Harper’s ceramic work is inspired in part by the design aesthetic of Scandinavia. The houses of Iceland, the fabric prints of Sweden and Finland and the clean lines of everyday objects. Her work is not limited to one clay or firing process; stoneware, porcelain, terra-cotta clays along with high fire gas reduction, soda, wood and electric firing all are used where needed for the surface effect desired. Lyn worked as a graphic designer in the frantic world television news for30+ years and that has given her a real appreciation for making art that takes weeks to produce.
