UK-based potter Sue Binns is largely self taught but has spent a few years under the guidance of the Montem School in the 80s. She produces a wide array of functional domestic stoneware with her distinctive stripe patterns. In a statement on Beside the Wave she writes:
“I’m fascinated by the way stripes create different visual impressions, positive or negative, depending on their thickness and density’. She draws inspiration from 1950s Rye Pottery, which she grew up near, as well as Mediterranean pottery and Japanese fabrics and ceramics.”
