Gunn-Russell is a British ceramist. She trained at the Camberwell
School of Art from 1971 to 1975. Since then she has had various
studios around London.
She is well-known for her colorful, hand-built sculptural vessels,
which follow on from the forms of James Towers - working in a flattened
perspective trompe-l’oeil style akin to that of Elizabeth
Fritsch. Accustomed pot shapes are flattend and distorted, challenging
our traditional views of shape and perspective.
Amongst her influences she counts her teachers Glenys Barton, Ian
Godfrey, Janice Tschalenko and others.
