Mountain range

Black Edges bowls diam 18cm     £120

 

Inspired by the beautiful N W Highlands where massive mountain ranges reach down to the rugged coastline. Memories of walking Beinn Alligin and Beinn Dampf inspired a range of tall Standing Forms with deep chasms, and eroded bowls with delicately textured edges and finely pinched edges. Breathtaking!

Edges bowls – snow and ice with frozen waterfalls linger on the mountain faces. Porcelain is a perfect clay to create sweeps of slip that capture some of the energy of the mountains, with an appearance of delicacy that belies great strength.

Landslip vase – like the action of ice I have gouged and scraped facets of the pots and applied thick layers of slip. Referencing the Japanese ethos of wabi sabi – imperfect and impermanent – these pots fit easily in the home whilst still making a striking statement.

Folded vases  – twists and folds in sedimentary layers inspire these quiet thoughtful pieces.

Erosion bowl – endless erosion and weathering creates beautifully subtle textures that I emulate with layers of slip – alternating between building up layers and scraping back until a pattern is revealed.
