Meet the artist & maker

Pamela Thorby is a ceramic artist making both sculptural and functional work mainly in porcelain and stoneware. In 2016 she left a distinguished career in music to pursue her new path as an artist.
During lockdown Pamela worked intensively towards a collection of thrown functional stoneware to partner with her sculptural hand built porcelain forms, the concentrated discipline of daily wheel practice providing meditative solace and structure in extraordinary times.

This is the first year that Pamela Thorby has exhibited at York Open Studios
