"Having grown up in Stoke on Trent, I've always had a love for the pottery industry and the rich heritage that the city has to offer. This inspired me to work within the industry which has not only enriched my knowledge but enabled me to grow as an artist. These experiences heavily influence my current work using reclaimed screens from the printing process in pottery factories. I like to use "throw away" objects in my art, to not only add another dimension but to give the "objects" a new purpose and story. Using colour to express not only my personal style but the vibrancy of stoke's pottery past and future!"
I studied textile design at Chelsea college of arts, I worked for Churchill China first on the factory floor and then in the graphic design department before setting up my studio in Stoke on Trent in 2017.
Rosie Threadgold is exhibiting at Barewall, with Colour Graphic 6th October to 20th October 2018.
