Lorna will travel to Sweeney’s Bothy on the Isle of Eigg in September, and has proposed to seek out and work with the Bryophytes growing on the island – low growing mosses and liverworts. Using a hand lens, ID book, camera and sketchbook, she will work to translate and share these overlooked plants first as drawings and then in porcelain.
Lorna is a ceramic artist combining traditional hand-built and industrial mould making techniques to create unique one-off pieces, small series of works and site-specific installations. A graduate of Gray’s School of Art Aberdeen, she has exhibited widely in the U.K. and internationally.
