We are delighted to present Hilke Macintyre’s painting, prints and ceramics as our festive Maker in Focus. Hilke’s work uses a simplified figurative style with strong abstract pattern.

“I enjoy using bold shapes, strong colours and patterns. The world around me, especially nature, animals and people, give me plenty ideas for pictures. Particular influences are primitive art, artists of the early 20th century and contemporary design.”

The limited-edition ceramic reliefs are made in editions of 50. An original design is formed from clay from which a plaster mould is made into which new slabs of soft clay can be pressed to et an identical relief. After a first lower firing in a kiln, the reliefs are individually glazed so that each looks slightly different. They are then fired again at a high temperature. Each tile is numbered and signed.

Hilke exhibits throughout Great Britain and has been selected several times for the annual show of the Royal Scottish Academy. Amongst other commissions her linocuts have been used to illustrate publications for the Neuk Musical Festival and the National Youth Choir of Scotland.
