c1167 -  Sheila CASSON

Dates: b.1930

She studied pottery and lithography at Hornsey School of Art. In 1955 she married fellow potter Michael Casson. Intially they worked in central London and then moved to Prestwood, where the majority of the work was undecorated domestic ware. In 1977 they moved to Wobage Farm in Herefordshire, creating studios and workshops. Her work is made in porcelain, thrown and fired in a salt glaze kiln. Some of her more recent work has been hand built using the coiling method. Decorative designs are inspired by the surrounding landscapes.
