New Ceramics page on my web site
I have set up a new web page for my ceramic work.
Pieces include a series of ceramic pots inspired by my seascape paintings, some are embellished with a figure on the lid. Each pot is coil built in layers allowing the form to evolve intuitively in a sculptural process, giving each pot a uniqueness which embraces looseness and freedom of form. The glaze colours are applied to represent the constant movement of the sea; the raw pot is like dry sand with a wet edge against the white shallow water, whilst deeper depths are represented by rich green and turquoise hues. The figures on the lids have their own narratives; finding a stillness above the turmoil of the moving sea.
