Colette Woods is a ceramist and painter living and working in Bruton, Somerset, whose work is building up an international following of private collectors.
Woods’ hand-built ceramics, created in stoneware, fuse inspiration from the classical world with a very modern enchantment. Her work is bold and robust, sculpted to its core identity, where form is everything and colour is pared back to a magical flourish.
‘Everything I make is designed to be used and to celebrate daily life – bringing purity and visual joy to the table. My paintings also reference the celebration of eating, with a collection of still lives featuring simplified, semi abstract trios of anchovies, intentionally unframed to be casually propped within an interior vignette.’
