Iona May Stock creates functional and sculptural ceramic pieces inspired by lichens from around the local area of her rural studio. Taking colours and textures from micro details, creating complex surfaces using several different foraged and developed glazes.

These pieces are further enhanced using throwing techniques to crack the surface of the clay which is then layered with wild foraged clays, rocks and hand foraged local ashes, from wood and bracken. These natural colours are added to with pops of colourful using crawling and bubbling glazes creating multi textured and brightly coloured pieces to depict the surfaces the lichens create. These all have a groundedness achieved through the natural inspiration and wild foraged materials which are integrated into their creation.

Colour and texture are influential themes within Iona's work, creating a series and functional and sculptural pieces embracing these themes and exploring materiality.
