Juliet Gorman’s hands have been in clay for 34 years. The real passion, however, only really showed itself when she was introduced to the smoke-firing technique in 1994. She then
concentrated on experimenting and developing her own style of smoke-fired ceramics, trying
to keep an honest association with the roots of the process. Throughout the procedure she is
constantly amazed at how subtle changes occur as the clay begins to start dictating the final
outcome. The excitement and unpredictability of the whole process is so fascinating and

Juliet says, ‘I suppose it is only natural that my work emulates my African origins, which given the technique, is appropriate in so many ways. Most of the pieces are based on my own photographs taken during visits to Africa and from memories and research. The challenge of each piece is to find the right shape, texture and colour, to assist the smoke in creating a unique piece of work. I continue to enjoy experimenting and pushing out the boundaries of this technique and realise that there is so much more to learn. Oh for more time!’
