Vivienne Sillar

Vivienne Sillar

Vivienne was born in Glasgow in 1958 and has spent every summer in Kildonan, Arran. She is now able to divide her time between living and teaching in Chesterfield, Derbyshire and also regularly visiting Kildonan several times a year.

Trained at Gray's School of Art, Aberdeen (1976 1981) she specialised in sculpture and ceramics. Soon after graduating she started a 16 year period of working in Arts Administration and Gallery Education, working in Sunderland, Cumbria and Sheffield. She is now a tutor at Chesterfield College teaching Art and Design where she has taught for 13 years. Having worked at helping others to show and appreciate artwork she is now returning to focusing her own creativity.

Influences in her work are the natural world, found objects and texture and pattern.

"I am a compulsive beachcomber. Every walk along the shore provides a starting point for another piece of work. The curve of a stone or the twist of a piece of wood, are the things that fascinate me. I make both functional and decorative ceramics, which are embellished using the textures offered by leaves, seaweed, driftwood and shells impressed into clay. The are enhanced using a range of oxides and glazes."
