The Line / by Romy Northover

The creations of artist and ceramicist Romy Northover result from a unique blend of techniques and traditions from around the world, as well as an innate sense of craft. Each piece has its layers: European training, Japanese methods, and pure intuition. “It’s a very personal thing,” Northover explains of her ceramics, which share a style she calls “ancient future.”

"I feel very connected to ancient, primitive arts and to raw surfaces and textures, but I’m equally into super-refined design, styling, and modernist forms. I like the dichotomy in technique, balance, form and the experiential process."
