Jo Pethybridge

About Jo

Vineyards in France, the Grand Canyon, the waves and ripples and sunlight on water in the ocean or pine forests in summer or autumn, all taken from nature or her surroundings, are inspirations for Jo’s ceramic artwork. None of her designs are the same, every piece tells a different story, it is intricate and delicate, yet bold and abstract and most defiantly contemporary.
