In this time of lockdown we still easily managed to make new friends!
A series of photos taken during winter whilst travelling on a train. Taken through the train window some of the results proved very interesting with the reflections from inside the carriage layered against the blurred images of the forward ground and the sharp focus of the distant view.
The speed of the train lends a certain drama to the image.
These are some recent pots.
They are stoneware with blue slip decoration. The lines sometimes create new forms echoing the basic form of the chosen shape. The large jug isn’t functional – its too heavy and big!
But the lines help to enliven its sturdy form and suggest the origins of the shape. The large Pebble vase is reminiscent of the sea and how the shapes are smoothed with the action of the water over time.
