Shape Vases

One of a Kind Sculptural Vases

My current collection of vases were developed out of a love for the interaction of architecture and the natural world. This theme has been present in my photography over the last fifteen years, and now runs through my ceramics practice.

 

The simple slab-built forms contrast with plants and flowers, allowing the flowers to peek out from behind the vase.

The front plane incorporates a fine layer of twisted and folded hand-coloured clay, embedded into the surface. I love the flow and movement that can be shown in the coloured clay, and the unexpected outcome with the shifting of the pattern as it is rolled into shape.

 

This patterning process has gradually developed after becoming fascinated with traditional Japanese Nerikomi technique, and Agateware process as soon as I started working with clay.

I aim to always have a collection of vases available in my shop, and to release new collections three times a year. Please see my News page for details of forthcoming shop updates.
