Sharon Griffin is a figurative artist who specialises in ceramic sculpture using stoneware clays, oxides, engobes and her own glazes using raw materials found in the shropshire landscape. Sharon is directly inspired by the woodland where she often explores places in which to ‘breathe’. The textures, the smells, the secret spaces all provide a kind of ‘awakening’.
Sharon uses the figure to help communicate a sense of deeper meaning within humankind and of her own experience of being a woman. The sculptures represent a state of being; internal struggles of love, loss, displacement, vulnerability and strength.
