Patricia Shone

Patricia Shone is a potter living on the Isle of Skye specialising in naked raku and fast fire wood firing with some soda. She studied at the Central School of Art, London. Texture and a close connection to the physical land of its origin are important elements of her work. Patricia uses combinations of hand building and throwing with slips, glazes and firing techniques to achieve this. Her work is influenced by the powerful landscape of the Isle of Skye where she has lived for 18 years.
