Welcome to Gin Durham Ceramics. The inspiration for Gin's unique animal sculptures stems from a life long love of animals and how they are represented within culture.

Gin draws on an imagination which has been shaped by treasured tales and imagery which she has translated into beautifully detailed porcelain and stoneware sculptures.

Clay is such a wonderfully expressive material and lends itself to exploring emotional connections with storytelling and expressing the behaviours of the animal subject 

Her material choice of clay as a medium is an extension of her drawing, painting and illustration practice; one informs the other. The clay is drawn and shaped to represent fluid forms based on anatomically correct studies, though rich creativity enhances and exaggerates detail in the work.
