Florence Wigens is an artist specializing in Ceramics and soon to be graduate of The University of the West of England's Drawing and Applied Arts Course.

Fascinated by the endless possibilities of clay from a young age, the material has been an integral part of her practice throughout her art education. Working intuitively with clay; Florence endeavors to make organic forms embodying nature and the human figure with an inviting tactility.

Her recent work explores mortality; growth and transience. The female figures maintain a sense of anonymity, so
me with floral growths on their shoulders and in their hands. The figures invite the viewer to look at their body, how they support themselves and how the body services the emotions they experience.

The figures touch upon the subjects of permanence, mortality and the end of life. The floral growths on the bodies of the figures allude to the cycle of growth and decay organic matter and the human body share.
