After graduating from Staffordshire University with a BA in 3D Design, Bryony set up a ceramics studio at the historic Spode factory in Stoke while working full-time as a school photographer. Two years on, she enrolled on the Masters in Ceramics & Glass at the Royal College of Art to further her practice.
Bryony spent the first year experimenting with materials and techniques, during which she developed an interest in high-end restaurant tableware. Slip casting became central to her body of work and she creates different forms on the plaster lathe, from turning thin, wide plates to circular forms with interlocking elements. QEST will fund Bryony’s second year fees as she develops her ideas.
