Ceramics

I make altered wheel-thrown vessels with sculptural additions as well as utilitarian bowls and plates. Natural forms and elements, archaic patterns and glyphs all fascinate me: I experiment widely.  

I have attended various Adult Education centres across West London and was inspired by a residential stint at Wenford Bridge under Seth Cardew; I greatly improved my observational skills over years of attending Jan Buckley's life drawing classes: these helped me develop my sense of form and colour; her life sculpture classes made me explore shapes and hone my modelling skills.

My work was on display as part of a show celebrating adult education inspired by the collections at the Victoria & Albert museum.

I have taught ceramics to children of all ages in a challenging environment.

'Allegra Mostyn-Owen's ceramics do many things: they cast new light on old forms, sinuously re-creating and re-blending the ancient and the modern; sexy and original combinations of colours and glazes make one see familiar things anew. In all of it there is a feeling of vitality; actually of growth in some, and the dynamism of form is creatively combined with a true and delightful feeling for colour.' Nicholas Vester, collector

'Allegra's ceramics seem each to tell me fragments of different mysterious stories - elemental, primal, joyful, witty and at times threatening, dense, unsettling and eerie. Her pieces are underpinned by a satisfying classicism of form. Each one conveys an almost mythological, archetypal tale drawn from the infinite beauties and terrors of life on earth.' Sarah Sarhandi, musician and collector
