Philomena Pretsell

I paint with precious, gaudy, metals; add found objects to the fired work: silk flowers in acidic yellow or vivid pink make us laugh or cry with horror; either is acceptable to the maker but maybe not to the viewers? Enjoying a challenge I don’t aim to make vessels that are necessarily ‘easy’ but do hope they will make someone stop or even find it so tricky to pause and look that they pass by, turn back, saying – ‘What IS that?’– That’s a response in itself.
