Verity is a ceramic artist who responds to subjects surrounding people, history and places. By creating slab built works she captures feelings, moods, atmospheres and a sense of place. The forms Verity creates are contemplative, using clay as a medium for drawing and monoprinting. It is important to Verity that the form of her work is integral to the subject she is responding to. That surface and form work together to create a successful and harmonious composition.
Verity has won numerous awards including the Guldagergaard Network Award, 2015, which enabled her to complete a ceramics residency at Guldagergaard, International Ceramic Research Centre, Denmark. She was also awarded the Manchester Craft and Design Centre Graduate Award which allowed her a three month solo exhibition at the centre from February - May 2016.
In 2017 Verity was selected for Hothouse, the Crafts Council’s creative business development programme for up-and-coming makers. Last year Verity's work was chosen for the IV. International Ceramics Triennial UNICUM, Slovenia, 2018 and Verity also took part in New Designers One Year In from the 27th- 30th June, 2018, at the Business Design Centre, London. As a result of exhibiting in New Designers One Year In Verity was featured in the London Evening Standard on the 27th June, 2018, in the Homes and Property section. In March 2019 Verity took part in Ceramic Art London which was hosted at Central Saint Martins, King's Cross.
