Lynne Sofiak

Lynne is committed to producing functional ware, which is also aesthetically pleasing. She can often be found absorbed in one of the many stages of her medium, from the rhythm of throwing which allows the responsiveness of the clay to guide her forms, to the ritual of
tending her propane-gas kiln, which she built herself. The pieces are glazed and decorated freehand with metal oxides, producing colourful and spirited designs. The interplay of the oxides with the richness of the glazes create patterns that hint of flowers and birds and insects all in the same stroke.

The spirit of inquiry is a vital force in recent one-of-a-kind works, which include form alterations and the multiple layering of clay slips, glazes and oxides using numerous application techniques. Some pieces have their form extended through the addition of various roots and vines, which have been gathered locally.

Dedicated to the pursuit of her vision, Lynne responds from the heart to interpret the northern landscape.
