MEET CAROLINE MARWOOD

I am a fine art printmaker and mixed media artist. I also make raku fired ceramics.

My studio is in my garden at Bowl Rock just outside St Ives, Cornwall.

I create a wide variety of work inspired by the Cornish landscape and the flora and fauna which make this place so special.

I regularly run workshops in both printmaking and ceramics.

I am a member of the St Ives Arts Club and I am the Resident Artist at St Ia Parish Church where I run monthly Art and Spirituality sessions.

My work is for sale at the Shoreline Gallery in St Ives as well as online.

OIL AND COLD WAX

Oil and Cold Wax Paintings

I create representational and abstract work using the medium of oil paint mixed with cold wax. This allows me to create layers and textures not possible with paint alone. My works is very much focussed on the landscape around me and the beauty of my garden.

RAKU FIRED CERAMICS

Pit friring, smoke firing, glaze firing

I was introduced to Raku-fired ceramics about three years ago and became immediately hooked. It is such a dynamic and relatively unpredictable firing method which makes it exciting and immediate. It's also a bit like printmaking in that although you plan what you want to achieve, each piece is completely unique. I use glazes on many pieces but the magic that I really love is the result of natural pit, smoke and saggar firings. During these processes amazing colours can be created using natural materials such as eggshells, copper, seaweed and banana skins to name just a few. Additional marks can be made with the addition horsehair and feathers at the red hot stage. Every year I make a batch of baubles and although I sell them at Christmas, they make excellent year round decorations.

PRESSED SEAWEED

Original pressed seaweed and prints

I love to forage as I walk on Cornwall's beautiful beaches and I collect washed up seaweed. I take it home, rinse it and then float it in water to ensure I get the full effect of the feathery fronds before carefully sliding paper beneath it and then pressing it for up to 6 weeks. I then excitedly open the press to see what beautiful images appear. I photograph the results to make prints and also sell the original pressings.
