Adele Scantlebury - Artist Statement

My official art education ended in 1987 with a BA Hons in Ceramics from Farnham. I was then fortunate enough to find work in Sussex making traditional finials and floor tiles. We worked on many Heritage projects - including the floor tiles for the Crypt of St Paul’s Cathedral.
It was during this time that I explored working with woodblock printing. I really enjoyed the simplicity of the process; instead of a press, using the back of a wooden spoon and a lot of elbow grease!
Peeling the paper off the block for the first time is always a magic moment as the picture is revealed, a mirror image of the piece of wood I have been carefully chipping away at for days.
I live and work in East Sussex and exhibit my pictures mostly locally, whilst also facilitating and teaching the occasional workshop through Blackbird Arts.
A few years ago, I returned to clay after becoming involved in making the tiles for a friend’s new build house from the clay dug from the foundations. I have since had small, bespoke tiling commissions and run tile making workshops.
