reforming the built forms very hard with the scale, thickness of clay and different consistency of moist clay with dried up clay. cracking, rebuilding re wetting etc, thumb_IMG_3680_1024

this porcelain piece is a blown up, mixed coloured (using up my old stained clays) version of one of my small pinched pieces;



It’s interesting to see throughout all my photography of my work I am scaling the work up in the angles I see them from, now creating bigger versions of my maquettes I can have the scale available to me and concentrate more on the space, the connection and environment they are within.thumb_IMG_0032_1024 thumb_IMG_0033_1024

very beautiful colours and textures on the tools from the spray booth after spraying 3 maquette pieces.

Context; Hand building artists, Sara Moller works with sculpture and painting but is focused on chaos with a fusion of body and nature. Although she uses interesting mixes of materials within her ceramic hand built work. From what I can see in her photography of work she focuses on tensions and balance of sculptures, moving away from the plinth and finding a new environment for hand built work.

Ideas; questioning the array of colours – colour scale in my work. .playful and random works by it self and creates strong relationships with coloured materials/fabrics
