Joanna Szwej-Hawkin (Asia) works from her studio in south-east London
Her decorative and functional pieces are mainly slab-built in earthenware or stoneware clay. To give them a distressed look she applies layers of different coloured slips, and later decorates them with bespoke photocopied transfers and ready made decals. Some of the surfaces are inlaid with slips and underglazes. She makes limited editions and one-off pieces.
Asia is a Member of London Potters since 2019.
Winner of Best Hand-built Exhibit at London Potters Members Exhibition 2022.
