Angela makes her tiles in a large wooden shed she has built in her father’s garden in Brighton. Here her fruit and vegetable tiles grow alongside the peas, beans and onions; her butterfly, birds and fish busily evolve by the herbaceous borders; and her amoebae tile designs multiply within spitting distance of their mutating brethren in the compost heap. She is very much inspired by the location of her workshop in a garden, in a city surrounded by the sea and the South Downs. Angela takes plaster casts from life to capture textures and form and uses found objects – bits of broken clocks or golf tees – to make marks and patterns. She loves drawing into and building up textures on clay and then covering them in highly transparent glazes which pick up every mark; not all intentional. Making moulds for her tiles perfectly satisfies the urge to repeat again and again. By tweaking them slightly, birds, fish, butterflies, fruit and vegetables all have unique characters with subtle differences. Angela loves doing artists in schools projects and is always looking for new opportunities to continue this collaborative aspect to her work..
