Virginia Graham

Born: 1978, UK, England, Surrey

Ceramicist. Ceramicist. Graham completed a BA (Hons.) in Ceramics at the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff and now works in the Fireworks Studios in Cardiff. Her work combines the precious and collectable with the ordinary and familiar. Tea pots and tea services are instantly recognisable objects which were originally intended for use but by being collected acquire status. Floral transfers, metallic lustres and items such as tap handles, used out of context, remove her wares from the functional to the collectable intended primarily for witty pieces of domestic decoration.

Graham’s works have received awards from the Arts Council and have been featured on television and in several national publications including ‘Vogue’, ‘Home and Gardens’, and ‘Country Living’. She has exhibited worldwide in countries including Japan, the USA and the UK.
