Tanya Gomez graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2010 with a Masters degree in Ceramics and Glass. In her earlier years she worked on private yachts. Whilst travelling around the globe she became fascinated by colour, shape and the diversity of different cultures she encountered. This eventually manifested itself in her work.
Gomez makes functional vessels. She works in porcelain and uses a range of throwing techniques to create forms that capture fluidity, movement and provide a sense of space.
"It is through a process of energetic making and rigorous selection that I have learnt to observe how the clay works and find new ways to move forward".
Tanya works from her home in Lewes, East Sussex, where she has been working as a professional ceramicist for 7 years. She exhibits her work around the UK and also works to commissions. Her work in the Prints & Ceramics in the City exhibition is for sale and ranges between £45 for smaller pieces to £900 for the large scale work.
