I finished an MA in Ceramics at Bathspa University in 2014 where I concentrated on experimental work. The resulting sculptures express a physicality and movement that celebrates the expressive potential of the clay.
This desire for a relaxed spontaneity is explored in some of these domestic jugs. The wheel thrown form acts as a canvas; it is dipped in white slip, then vigorous, gestural overlapping and sweeping marks are applied with a ladle.
The intention is to let it flow and trust in the process. I use soft clay encouraging a looser more fluid and immediate style of throwing on the wheel. See website for more information.
