Footnotes

  • Patricia Volk FRSS is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Sculptors, confirming her position as an outstanding visual artist working in painted fired clay.

    In January 2019 she was commissioned by ITV as part of the prestigious 'ITV Creates' initiative, making her sculpture visible on screen to millions of television viewers.

    As can be seen in 'Cog', Volk's sculptural language is one of contradictions and juxtapositions of form, line, and colour.

    "I love working with the directness of clay," she says, "using all the techniques, coiling and slab building, working in a purely instinctive and abstract fashion which results, via a sense of play, in one-off pieces - hand-made and unique - which are fired, put together in a totally un-premeditated design, then lastly finished with acrylic paint. Above all, I aim for my work to achieve a strong visual presence, but together with that, a sense of each one having an individual, distinct and unrepeatable character."
