A NEW SHAPE…

I am enjoying working with a new shape: Menhir, named because it reminds me of the stones that Obelix carries around in the Asterix books, which helped me learn to read French!

Here are the first two menhirs, which develop different themes that I have been exploring in my past work: weaving patterns and trompe l’oeil.

       

Best of British – Shanghai

This is my latest pot – warm out of the kiln and ready to take to Shanghai where I have been given the opportunity to show my pots at the Best of British exhibition.  Such fun!

The show runs from 18 to 22 October 2018.  If you are in Shanghai do come and visit me on Stand E6.

      

NEW VIDEO

A new commissioned vase

It’s not often that a client takes you to their home, points to a place on their sideboard and says “Make me something to go here.”

This is especially welcome, when ‘here’ is in a beautiful room, surrounded by understated but incredibly elegant abstract paintings, lit from both sides with generous windows looking out onto fabulous, mature gardens.

A wonderful challenge.

This slipcase vase, part glazed and part exposed underglaze, is my response.

       

Another commissioned piece….

In stark contrast to the previous commission, this one specified bright, colourful, sunny and three-dimensional…

Many thanks for the challenge Laura!

      

Commissioned piece….

I’m delighted with this commissioned piece which pares back the Arrow Head pattern to a monochrome design, really emphasising the twisted shape of this vase.

Thank you Jonny and Wei!

           

Pot video 5

The fifth video that Arnaud made is of one of the vases in my Tall Oval Vases collection.  The woven pattern is generated by straight lines running from one side of the small oval at the base to the other side of the larger oval at the lip.

Pot video 4

This, Arnaud’s fourth video, features another of my Cinched Oval Vases: Diagonal (ii).  The pattern is more painterly than many of my pots but it still has an underlying structure formed by a strong geometric spiralling pattern.
