A slip cast earthenware Cream Jug.
First I break up and re-construct the pieces into a solid block of clay, which is then cast in plaster to about 6 parts. These pieces are then cast with earthenware slip and fired three times in the kiln to complete the body of work. The forms, after deconstruction, are functional but the concept is to understand the relationship between functional pieces and decorative pieces; to understand if the purpose of pieces on a dresser are to be used or are purely decorative.
Each piece is handmade and unique and measures approximately 12cm x 15cm.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
