Featured Designer: Jenny Haytch

The identity of Jenny haytch came about after, as she puts it,  “…had been applying for jobs and waiting for various aspects of my life to kick off a few years after graduating, and still nothing was really happening.”

 Needing to do something aside from job hunting to give herself a feeling of accomplishment at the end of day; some instant gratification.  And something that she could afford to do.  So she started drawing.

While having no intention of anyone really looking at it – it was months before she put anything publicly online but it seemed to go down pretty well.  I didn’t (and don’t) take it too seriously. Jenny tries to let her designs flow out as naturally as possible without bogging them down by overthinking them.

Featured Designer: William Rolls

Featured Designer: William Rolls

Humorous, Spirited, Curious, Bounding, Energetic

Dogs provide William Rolls with enormous scope for experimentation and exploration. Playfulness and joyfulness, movement and freedom are important elements in the characters that he produces. The clay creates the characters in his work whilst he influence structures, forms and surface finishes.

Every clay has its own strengths and weaknesses and brings unique qualities to each piece. It is important that each dog has a unique personality – either in form, character or technical application. He aims to capture the spirit of the dog without over finishing so that the final piece has inherent character and distinctiveness.

Most of his work is fired to stoneware so is durable. William finishes his work with slips, underglazes and oxides. His work is informed by research from real life. He says that he sketches dogs at every opportunity, as he wants to try and understand their anatomy, personalities and interactions. He has found that making time to do this has really helped his creative practice and culminated in the work he is currently producing. Every piece is unique.
