Bridget Fox is known for complicated forms which reference seed pod’s forms and interiors. Fox utilizes hand building techniques including pinch, coil, and slab to build her mostly small scale sculptural objects. When needed, she also uses the potter’s wheel, slab roller, molds or the extruder for making the initial form.

Fox alters and adds onto each piece to develop the complicated forms and then refines the surface. Fox carves, pokes, stamps, adds clay appendages, and impresses natural material and found objects into the clay. Color is very important in Fox’s work. She applies layers of glaze which she then scrapes through revealing areas of various stages of glazing, colors and textures. Most of her work is oxidation fired to cone 6 in an electric kiln.

While at the University of Georgia she studied with Andy Nasisse and Ted Saupe.

Initially, Fox made pit fired functional objects but moved on the creating more complex and exotic vessels.
