Remon Jephcott

Remon graduated from University College Falmouth in 2008 with a degree in Contemporary Crafts. At the prestigious graduate show, New Designers, she was invited to join the Society of Designer Craftsment and won their award for Excellent at the Mall Galleries in January 2009.

 

Remon then continued to study at UCF, gaining a Masters degree in 20th Century Art & Deisgn, Histories & Theories. She has been a practising ceramic artist since graduating and has exhibited widely throughout the UK.

 

Remon creates her pieces with a combination of slip-casting and hand-build techniques.  She uses earthenware clay and a range of kiln firings including glaze, decal and lustre. The various firings create the layered effects together with the addition of silver, glass and textiles. She is fascinated by the notion of fruit as a metaphor for female sexuality.  Here the fruits are fallen and rotten.
