Christine-Ann Richards has worked in thrown porcelain for more than twenty years, firing in an oxidizing atmosphere and specialising in crackle and monochrome glazes. A study trip to China in 1978 with the Craftsmen Potters Association had a radical effect on her work and way of life. She has pursued Chinese studies and returns regularly to China often accompanying fellow artists.
Since 1989 she has also been working with vitrified earthenware clay making large pots and water-features. The summer of 1992 she spent on an international workshop in Tokoname in Japan and in 1996 received a Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship to return there to "explore the way water is used in landscape and architecture". A project award from South West Arts has enabled her to develop and extend the range of work
