Hannah Tounsend

Hannah Tounsend combines ceramics and printmaking to create collections of sensitively realised vessel forms and subtly layered monoprints exploring the layered landscapes and sea-washed, weatherworn surfaces of the British coastline. Marks, lines and diffuse merging colours are built up, cut through and dissolved away referencing the endless remaking of the shore.     

In recent years Tounsend has undertaken a period of residence at Guldagergaard International Ceramics Research Centre in Denmark; returning to a series of solo exhibitions and going on to win several awards including the Best Newcomer to Ceramic Art London last year. A QEST Scholar Award and a Professional Development Bursary from The Artist Information Company has enabled the continued development of her practice, pushing it in exciting new directions.
