Fiona is an artist who works through the medium of ceramic. Photos can be seen under the heading, Gallery, Her new assemblages go under the name The Angel's Share an industry term for the portion of whisky lost in evaporation in the cask barrel. Here it is a metaphor for the poetics of the temporal soul. The composition, colour and rhythm of her 3 dimensional assemblages are informed by early Italian Renaissance painting; namely Duccio di Buoninsegna’s (d.1319) Maesta in Siena Cathedral and Giotto di Bondone’s (d.1337) Scrovegni Chapel frescoes in Padua, Italy. Fiona's material process engages with modernism’s formalist legacy through the deconstruction of narrative into discrete components, visible process (press moulded clay, mono printing, collagraphy) and the repetition of minimalist rectangles.

Fiona's previous work, can be seen here and in the books, Natural Glazes, Collecting and Making by Miranda France and Additions to Clay Bodies by Kathleen Standen.
