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.

       

ANOTHER DOUBLE TWIST VASE…

….probably the last unless I get commissions.  It has been a fun shape to work with and who knows, I may come back to it again…

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.

       

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 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.

Pot videos 3

This is Arnaud’s third video of my pots.  This one is of the two Twisted Oval Vases, Arrow Heads (i) and (ii).  Made from the same mould, these could work as a pair, although they have now been sold individually.
