Elaine Hind RBSA

Born 1945 Birmingham, Elaine trained at Birmingham College of Art. She was elected as an associate of the RBSA in 1970 and as a member in 1992. Her work is nearly always a response to nature, especially plant forms, which she has been obsessed with since childhood. She works in porcelain because she likes the clean colours one can achieve, even when using thin washes. After many years when she would have said that form and modeling were the main characteristics of her work, she now feels that she is using the surface of her pieces more graphically than she used to, using drawing and painting, which she loves. She has also included glass on some pieces, which she makes in my kiln. Each piece is a unique one-off, but she often works on themes for periods.
