Artist of the Month: July

Farah Batool

Farah studied multi-media design at university and works full time as an art teacher.

She predominantly creates hand rolled ceramic tiles which are finished in glass. "I choose to hand roll rather than slip cast as I enjoy the process of making and preparing a quality product. This is most definitely the part of the process that is most painstaking and satisfying for me". 

She finishes all her bird designs in glass as the quality of the finish is more illuminating and vivid than glaze, it’s also more unpredictable and you never quite know how anything will turn out until the very end.
