Hi, I'm Belinda Stanton, but please call me Belin.
I live in Maleny, Queensland in Australia. After exploring 2d for most of my life as a graphic designer, I revisited clay one day in the back yard with the kids (my own and a few neighbourhood kiddies added in). Started going through the motions learned at art school a couple of decades earlier. Knead, roll, coil, shape. Knead, roll, coil, shape. Had a nice little figure growing in front of me, but was running out of clay... Pinch a bit from this kid, 'borrow' a bit from that one, and all done. I just did it to see if I still could, but haven't been able to stop ever since. It is a healthy vice though (mostly).
Now I'm on a mission to make the world a happier place. My work generally revolves about the art of being happy.
No toxic glazes/colours are used in any of my ceramic…
