Debbie Barber is a ceramic artist who specialises in raku and smoked fired ceramics. She works from her home studio in rural Leicestershire. She loves pattern and colour and takes inspiration from the natural world – trees, plants, the birds in her garden and surrounding countryside. Debbie was drawn to naked raku as a firing technique as she enjoys the hands on and the dynamic process of raku firing. Her creative drive ensures that she is constantly looking for ways to take her work forward changing decorative techniques and making processes.
