Fay De Winter
A London based ceramicist, Fay De Winter first graduated in 2004 in ceramics design at Central Saint Martin’s and returned to study at Farnham University for the Creative Arts, completing in 2012 an MA Contemporary Craft course specialising in ceramics.
She has completed a DTLLS teaching qualification at Canterbury Christ Church University and achieved qualified teaching learning status (QTLS) through the Institute for Learning (IFL).
Fay has taught ceramics since 2005, with adult students and for family education. Fay was also the first ceramicist to test-pilot the Victoria and Albert museum ceramic galleries in 2009, including training and teaching staff.
Fay is an active maker, involved in many jobs related to her ceramics practice.
She also ran a business and workshop for five years before completing her MA course, in a National Trust property and presently works from a studio based at home. Fay has been a trustee and council member for London Potters since 2005, organising many ceramic related events.
Since graduating Fay has participated in many events in England, Japan, Bali, Milan, Bahrain and the USA. She has sold works to individuals from different countries and exhibited her pieces at galleries, museums and as part of design week in alternative venues.
At present, Fay is writing a book, Make it with Air Dry Clay, due to be released in January 2017.
Fay loves to experiment with clay, exploring different perspectives of nature and travelling around the world, collecting curio to be inspired by. She believes objects are mysterious and tell intimate stories of people’s lives, often holding personal and collective meanings of a particular time, place, and event. She is intrigued by hidden details, creating collections that seem initially repetitive but upon closer inspection, revealing unique elements.
