I’m Florence - a visual and ceramic artist based in London.
I studied Fine Art at Wimbledon College of Art before completing an MA at the Slade School of Fine Art, and embarking on a career as a sculpture and installation artist. In 2020 I launched Florence Mytum Ceramics, and use my background as a sculptor to create bold, colourful and tactile ceramics.
My work celebrates colour, texture and form which I explore through a focus on materiality. Each piece is individually handmade from stoneware clay in my East London studio, and decorated with bold patterns and tactile surfaces using colourful slips and glazes. My pieces bridge the gap between decorative, sculptural and functional ceramics. By employing ergonomic form and saturated colour, my pieces aim to ignite the senses and bring joy to the viewer. The handcrafted nature of my work means that each piece is totally unique. My ceramics are for those daring to defy a homogenised interior full of mass-produced products, and invest in quirky, distinctive and handcrafted pieces for their homes.
My ceramic work is stocked in contemporary lifestyle store Dot Homeware, and I will be taking part in the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair this summer. In 2019 I was shortlisted for the National Sculpture Prize and commissioned by ITV to create a sculpture which was broadcast as an ident on ITV in 2019 and 2020. I have exhibited work in exhibitions nationally, and been awarded funding from organisations such as a-n.
