ABOUT

Celia Wood is an Edinburgh based ceramicist.  Her work celebrates ceramic narrative in conjunction with functionality. Fascinated by historical methods of ceramic story telling she combines her hand-built pieces with naive, lighthearted contemporary illustrations, passionate that ceramic narrative plays a vital role in the observance and documentation of current society and culture. 

Her inspiration comes from literature, medieval art, folk art and tales, slow living and wellbeing. This is translated through fun, characterful imagery, line work and print techniques learnt in her BAHons Illustration degree. Celia’s aim is that her audience feels a sense of joy and hope when they see and buy her work.

She works in earthenware and terracotta, for a low firing temperature that keeps colours vibrant. She experiments often with coloured slips and traditional methods of sgraffito and slip trailing creating texture and imperfections in the work that create uniqueness and individuality. It is rare that she makes the same piece twice. 

Work is available to buy in small batches through her online shop, a variety of stockists (see below), exhibitions and private commissions.
