Diane McCormick Ceramics



Diane seeks to provide art for healthcare environments in a thoughtful and humorous way seeking the
participation of patients, staff and visitors with the use of poetry, words, images and photos. Her main
interest is ceramics but she has also worked with bronze, metal etching, printing and glass, and created
designs for vinyl flooring, wallpaper, Perspex and Formica. Strong patterns combined with fine detail and
craftsmanship are brought together to make site specific artworks. Diane McCormick is a ceramic artist best
known for her large scale public artworks but who also makes smaller scale ceramic objects, refined
variations on a familiar themes: the container, for example or ceramic panels. The Byzantine elements within
her work come from a fascination with the iridescent surfaces of lustre glazes, the visual depth of which is
built up in layers and through repetitive complex firings. Most recently, she has developed a range of high
fired surfaces using a satin finish barium glaze giving rich blues which she uses with print techniques,
painted slip and complex textured surfaces.
