Victoria Dark graduated with a BA Hons.,
from Bath Academy of Art and an MFA from Southern Illinois
University. Very early on in her career, she specialised in
the technique of slip casting and working with porcelain.
Over the last 18 years she has produced an
extensive range of delicate vessels and wall mounted plates
and plaques. An intensive investigation into Raku has enabled
her to develop a real understanding of its complexity and its
enormous potential for creating rich and complex surfaces of
many overlaid colours and textures.
The unique finished pieces have qualities
reminiscent of the landscape and a timeless sense of forms
shaped and weathered by natural forces. The surfaces have an
ambiguity and tension between physical marks and a sense of
depth created by a dramatic range of colours and metals she
applies after the firings.
She has exhibited widely in Britain and
