Stanley & Clementine (pair)
Named after my grandparents, this pair began their life on the potter’s wheel. Each comprise 6/7 individually thrown pieces.
- A playful stack of thrown pieces, capturing an essence of a 1950’s married couple. Rich, toasty old-bronze and turquoise colouring
- Height: 42 cm
- Thrown, altered & assembled
- Combination of stoneware clay types; various copper and aged bronze glazes
Much of my work starts on the potter’s wheel: I enjoy the tactile soft flowing nature of the clay and throwing rings, and how they ensnare the essence of fluidity and motion, of life and energy. The ‘magic’ then happens in the assembly stage – where pieces are selected, balanced, and even squiggled together.
