Dawn Youll originally trained at Glasgow School of Art and continued her studies at the International Ceramics Centre at Cardiff School of Art and Design. Her vibrant ceramic sculptures are an expression of her personal environment - responses to familiar items found around her home, studio and local streetscape. Her method of analysing and distilling the essence of ordinary objects to create emphatic signs offers incisive insights into contemporary experience.
Youll’s work has featured in numerous exhibitions across the UK, most recently in Crafting Narrative, a Crafts Council Touring Exhibition guest-curated by Onkar Kular. She represented the UK at the European Ceramic Context exhibition in Denmark and in Ceramics: The New Generation in France, both in 2010. In 2011 she was awarded the prestigious Arts Foundation Fellowship for Ceramics and her work can be found in the collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Crafts Council, London. Youll is also Crafts Programme Producer at Cove Park, Scotland, and has held teaching posts at both Glasgow School of Art and Grays School of Art in Aberdeen.
