This delightful pair began their life on the potter’s wheel. Each comprise 3-5 individually thrown pieces.
- Two playful forms – perhaps echoes of visitors to Tatooine. Toasted stone colours outside; gentle turquoise within.
- Height: 11 cm
- Thrown, altered & assembled
- Combination of stoneware clay types; dry halo copper glaze
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.
The small round indentations are as a result of organic inclusions (giant couscous & chickpeas) in the clay whilst throwing.
