Debbie Barber

About Debbie

Lancashire based Debbie spent ten years working in the field of textile design and embroidery before changing course and returning to college to train as a potter, having had a lifelong interest in ceramics. Retaining the influences from her background in textiles, she takes a great deal of inspiration from the patterns and colours found in the natural world. 

Debbie was drawn to Naked Raku as she enjoys the hands on approach of this technique as well as the dynamic firing process it entails. Each item is hand modelled, with glaze and slip resists applied before firing, resulting in pieces that combine uniquely textured surfaces with the delicate intricacy of her design work.
