introduction

Hello, I am Carole Windham, welcome to my website. I have been a ceramic artist since the 1960s and my roots are in the Pop Art movement of that era.

The work in the gallery section spans over 40 years, reflecting my evolution as an artist. I had the good fortune to know and work with Robert Arneson in the University of California at Davis, in the 1980s.

In 2000 I completed an MA at the Royal College and met Alison Britton and other wonderful contemporary British artists. In my last series of works, I referred to the sculptural flatbacks of the Staffordshire Potters of the 19th century.

Lately I have been exploring the work of the Staffordshire Designers of the 1950s and the way in which popular culture is reflected through the domestic tableware of the time.

quotes

Janice Blackburn, curator and collector: “Carole's work is...........totally unique and the sort of work that you collect for the future. It will stand the test of time.”

Alison Britton, ceramicist and writer: “Carole is a comic commentator artist, scrutinising the contemporary art-world through the clay ornament. Carole Windham has worked with clay for a long time now and could build anything (this show is a) ceramic triumph of scathing wit and craft.”

Sir Christopher Frayling, former rector of the Royal College of Art, writer and broadcaster: “Carole Windham makes witty comments on the art world, I have a large piece of hers in my office.”

Andy Christian, writer in Ceramics Art and Perception. 2011 issue 84: “Each of the works confirmed Windham’s deep sense of humanity and her ability to find her own place in our curious world. She is an essential commentator.”
