The Artist: Bev Milward
Bev Milward is an established maker working in porcelain. She was drawn to Stokes Croft China for the chance to work with fragments salvaged from our rich ceramic heritage. She is interested in the longevity and sentimentality of ceramics, how they infiltrate our lives and can be used as a tool for communication long after leaving the maker.
Bev's distinctive landscape collaged pieces have a strong narrative in common with her porcelain work. She is responsible for designing Strip Ochre, David Attenborough, Deconstructed Willow Pattern for Stokes Croft China. Her makers mark is a key which is featured on the front of the current British Studio pottery dictionary.
