“My working method is one that embraces chance, freedom, spontaneity and tension. The selection and combinations of textures and shapes being made through on-the-spot choices based on whats available. I keep collecting all things textural and have built up a box of treasures. This approach allows me to make full use of the Surrealist technique of generating surprise.”
Lynette currently works from her studio at home in Westville and gives private ceramic classes.
