Josephine Brimble is the illustrator and ceramicist behind Brimble Studio. She studied illustration here in Bristol at UWE, before moving into working with clay.
Based in Bristol, her studio is in her family garden, she creates hand-built pieces from stoneware and earthenware clay.
Brimble studio is inspired by storytelling from folklore and mythical creatures as well as nature; especially the sea. She enjoys the combination of these elements with modern living, weaving them into a tale that creates comical characters. Bringing to life these characters in ceramic form she uses a mix of approaches from painted slips, sgraffito, glaze application, sculptural elements and hand built structures to create her pieces. Delighting in creating something functional with it's own unique character because she believes that everyday items deserve more personality.
