A ceramic stoneware sculpture, handbuilt from Crank clay.
The overall shape is emphasised by the flowing curves of the lines that are carved into the form. The surface is a combination of rough and smooth textures.
Colour is applied as an oxide wash after the first firing, with porcelain slip brushed on in a wide band either side of the carved lines. This gives a contrast of colour and texture.
Each sculpture is hand-made, so no two will be exactly the same, but each will be similar in colour and size
I consider myself very fortunate to live in such a beautiful area as Somerset. The landscape with its curves and textures strongly influences me.
I combine various handbuilding techniques to make my sculptures, including slabbing, coiling and pinching. It is important to me that each piece is unique, so although I repeat designs, no two sculptures can ever be identical.
