About the Artist
Elizabeth Gorringe is a ceramic artist based in Oxfordshire, UK. While fully self-taught, designing and making has always been a fundamental part of Gorringe’s life, be it through film, photography or designing and making functional objects. Gorringe intends for her body of work to be minimalist in nature, but for it to hold some form of tangible lyricism within it. Objects with purity and purpose. Gorringe’s intention for her vessels is for them to hold a simplicity of line and form, distilled to their vital components so that the forms remain simple, restrained and uncluttered.
