Tina Fyfe

The main subject of interest for Tina and what she keeps returning to is sculpture inspired by the natural world, the oceans and forests that surround her on Vancouver Island.

Throughout her career as a ceramic artist, she has made several transformation from experimenting with combining unconventional materials primarily for textured effects. More recently, she has been absorbed in working with wire mesh and slip clay, finding completely new techniques that best express the complicated and contradictory aspects of the natural world. She continues to make work that inspires these feelings in others and shows them something new.
