"Florence St George’s love of ceramics started whilst studying for her BA in Art History at Bristol. But it wasn’t until she experienced post natal depression in 2013 that she transitioned from theory to practice, and began working with ceramics.
"She found the processes of throwing and sculpting clay both therapeutic and an effective way of channelling her creative urges. The resulting work shows her technical talent, and her ability to harness raw emotion into beautiful, sculptural ceramics.
"She splits her time between her studio at artists’ collective Kindred Studios in Queen’s Park and the Bahamas where she leads a group of special needs children who use sculpture as a means of expressing themselves. There, they collect and create clay from the natural environment, using the soil to produce functional terracotta works that provide a unique outlet for expression for the children."
