ABOUT THE ARTIST
Vivenne Foley makes hand thrown, classical and abstract porcelains. Her works are renowned for their clean lines and disciplined shapes.
The basis of her technique is classical wheel throwing and turning. She works clay with engineering precision, joining thinly made sections to attain height. It is most unusual to find these construction methods used with porcelain because of it's high shrinkage and lack of plasticity. Foley’s work is unique because she incorporates these techniques and yet retains the finest qualities of the material.
Based in Central London, her profile is International. Collectors include Heads of State and private patrons. Her work is in the White House, the royal household of Sweden, and the National Museum of Ireland, as well as embassies, hotels and corporate headquarters.
