Biography:

Jeff Teasdale is an Artist in Education whose own work moves between raku ceramics, sculpture, drawing, and painting.
He has had 25 years experience in art education, and is a provider of stimulating courses and workshops in two- and three-dimensions to all ages from nursery, primary, secondary and the adult sectors. He is also a senior examiner, coursework advisor and presenter for the AQA examination board for their Art and Design syllabuses (www.aqa.org.uk).

Jeff's raku ceramics are largely derived from the rock and boulder formations of the Peak and Staffordshire Mooorland Districts, with their glaze patterns coming from the sky and field formation patterns he encounters there.
Current sculptures are related to the theme of journeys, and the objects encountered on them, or those found at the 'exact point of turning' on a journey to retrace one's steps. The 'Scandinavian Saga' series explores this theme.

Drawing and painting are all related to these activities - drawing to record and understand what he sees and has sparked some kind of visual and mental interest in the subject, and painting to take these ideas further along with the process of engaging with the elements of line, shape, tone, texture, form, and then colour.


Artist's Location: Macclesfield, Cheshire.

‘Helmet Boulder’; raku ceramic and glazes. A regular theme of mine, basing ceramic pieces around significant boulders, both in my collection, and still in situ in places I revisit.
As with any stone or boulder we pick up on a beach (and why do choose just that one, rather than all the other millions lying around?), these are meant to be handled and experienced for their tactile qualities and qualities of form

Raku ceramic base cast from the ancient trackway running between the mountains of Rhinog Fach and Rhinog Fawr, Snowdonia. 
Group of pebbles collected from one step of the path and re-configured into a ‘snail’ spiral. There are many indigenous snails here and the ‘ammonite’ recalls the immense age of these two mountains. 
28 x 16 cm

Shutlingsloe Vessel’; raku ceramic, glazes and acrylic, sand and stone (at The Art walk, Manchester Airport). Two-part piece, the shallow ‘saucer’ depicts in glazes and acrylic, a ‘diorama’ of part of the landscape around Shutlingsloe, a peak above Macclesfield Forest, and visible from all parts of Cheshire & beyond.

The vessel on the base contains a piece of grit/sandstone from the summit, and the red sand is from two small exposed patches of sand to be found due east and west of the summit respectively. The sand is also formed into a ‘peak’ within the vessel. One of a current series based on this peak.

‘Spiral Vessel’; raku ceramic, glazes and acrylic, and fragments of ‘found’ pot.
The spiral is formed by fragments of old ceramic bits unearthed in my garden, and fired into the vessel. It’s a spiral because of the snails that inhabit our – is it really their? – garden. They were here long before we arrived at this house, and despite our best efforts at ‘exporting’ them by the bucketful to the woodland across the road, will no doubt still be here long after we have gone!

‘Xania Prism’; willow, raffia, and fragments of driftwood from Xania (Chania) in Crete. Part of a series incorporating ‘found objects’ from special places. The objects are themselves ‘worthless’, but also very special in terms of line, shape, texture, tone, colour and form etc (those things that make ‘art’ exciting!). Left where they were, they would have rotted away by now, but now they are in a kind of ‘shrine’.

Education Workshop; Year 8 student working on a large ‘abstract’ painting. This may not appear to be representational, but is in fact derived from a small observational drawing of part of a large sculpture that was itself, a ‘real object’ – but not ‘about anything’, other than what it was – a piece of sculpture made from a variety of materials.
