Mountain Edges bowls
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!
Wheel thrown from fine white porcelain. The bowls are inspired by sheer rock faces with precipitous edges. Energetic sweeps of porcelain slip decorate the forms making intriguing delicate edges.
Thrown porcelain bowl with a delicately pulled rim that contrasts with the velvety smooth surface.
Mountain Edges Standing Forms
Inspired by climbing the summits of snow clad mountains with soaring pinnacles and awesome show cornices.
The deep Black Cleft of Beinn Alligin features on the carved surface of this tall sculptural form. Thrown stoneware with crackled porcelain decoration.
Mountain Edges Vases
Evidence of precipitous edges on the mountains and deep crevices on this thrown vase.
Twists and folds are present in geological formations.
Black glazed bowls
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.
