  Selected Makers

Pauline Zelinski

I trained at West Surrey College of Art and Design graduating in 1970. I now live in the West Country where I work from my studio in Exeter. All of my pieces are individually made from white earthenware clay and are then decorated by hand painted underglaze colours before being biscuit fired. Careful mixing and building up of the colours produce vibrant tones and hues, and the final glazing and firing reveal the full intensity of the painting.

I make press moulds for the various platter shapes and all the other pieces are either thrown or slab–built. Ideas spring from forms and patterns in nature and inspiration is found in artists such as Matisse, Klee and the French artist Seguy for his richness of colour and design

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 37 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
