London-based artist, Phoebe Collings-James works across sculpture, video, sound and performance. She is a recipient of the Freelands Lomax Ceramics Fellowship, and her recent works have been dealing with the object as subject, giving life and tension to ceramic forms through an engagement with eroticism and the haptic qualities of clay, alongside inscribing sgraffito into ceramic paintings, including symbols, African folklore and mythic traditions. Collings-James’s founded Mudbelly ceramics studio as a personal practice and research outlet, but has since grown to encompass a shop and a teaching facility offering free ceramics courses for Black people in London, taught by Black ceramicists.
