Carolyn Tripp recently joined the studios and will be taking part in Wimbledon Art Fair this November for the first time. We caught up with her in the run up to the show to find out what she’s up to…
Hi Carolyn, where did it all begin for you, what’s your inspiration?
My inspiration originates from a tiny porcelain green bottle I was given by my grandmother when I was a child. That and broken pieces of pottery I have found over the years on the foreshore of the Thames.
How would you describe your work?
I work with porcelain, decorated with brightly coloured, mismatched patterns.
What should we expect to see at Wimbledon Art Fair?
I am hoping to introduction a new colour… we’ll see!
We hear you’ve got a busy few months, what are you up to?
I am at Made Marylebone in October and Handmade in Chelsea in November. Plus the Wimbledon Art Fair and I’ll be at the Leeds Design and Craft Centre until Christmas.
What do you love about being an artist at Wimbledon Art Studios?
I’m new here and am absolutely loving it. The light I have in my studio is such a revelation - coming from an arch! Also everyone is so friendly and helpful. It’s also great to have a named address to send deliveries too!
