Ingrid Saag

INGRID was born and grew up in Georgetown, Guyana. She trained in illustration at art colleges in London and Brighton. This led to a busy career for some 20 years as a freelance illustrator in publishing, packaging and advertising. In 2003 she returned to ceramics, enrolling at South Thames College to refresh and further her skills. She achieved a BTEC Professional Development in Ceramics qualification a year later.
"Most of my work is at present made in moulds that I have designed, by casting with Limoges white earthenware casting slip. Some pieces are altered after removal from the mould.  On some work, I paint with a combination of coloured slips, underglazes and glazes, using brushes, pens, pencils and chalks. A semi matt or glossy transparent glaze is sprayed on to finish. Other work may simply be decorated with brush on glazes." Some technically have a biscuit firing.
