Biography for Pam Schomberg (tbc)
Pam’s ceramics are beautifully crafted, highly individual works of art. With each piece containing its own character to the point where one can imagine it may get up and start walking. Constructed and hand-built in porcelain and stoneware, Pam impresses marks enriching each ceramic at various stages using oxides, slips and glazes building up a rich texture and depth. Some pieces stand on legs others are highlighted with gold (perhaps the influence of Gustav Klimt) others with a delightful array of colours. The result is each item becomes a precious gem emphasizing a creation of love and drive. Although Pam makes mainly non-functional one off pieces, her ranges also include jugs, display plates and fantastic unique cups and saucers.
Pam successfully ran ‘Gallery Schomberg’ in Colchester, but closed in order to concentrate on her own work. Over the last 20 years her work has been in many exhibitions throughout Great Britain including:- Liberty’s, London; Open Eye Gallery, Edinburgh; Cecelia Coleman Gallery, St. Johns Wood; The Crypt-St Paul’s; The Barbican, London; The William Morris Gallery, London; Peter Peirs Gallery, Aldeburgh and she has shown in France, Germany and the USA.
