FERTILITY JAR COLLECTION

18 JANUARY - 28 MAY  2018

 



    Surface pattern and texture play a key role within the narrative of my work. I use rusted, degraded and occasionally toxic objects collected from beach cleaning to mark and texture the flesh of clay slabs. After building up layers of distress, each slab is erected into a vessel through a freeform process of construction that enables the union of contrasting clay bodies. I take great care to express the intrinsic qualities present within vernacular clays through my work. The glazes applied are developed from recycled ocean iron, tin and chalk collected from the coast, supporting a toxin neutral production methodology.


     My vessels are labelled ‘Fertility Jars,’ after their inherent concern with the fertility of the earth, the constant ability of nature to heal, and for me clay is the perfect medium to express myself and my beliefs. Clay’s versatility and material connection between myself and my surroundings provides a conduit for the expression of the beauty of sustainability.
