charcoal drawing of many men somehow standing on each others shoulders and networked through their outstretched limbs

TEST This DRAWING composition is made up of many geometric and organic forms that are held within a bowl on a tall stand. The forms are richly coloured and textured and finished in a highly reflective set of glazes. The whole piece is made from sheets of clay (technically slab-built) so each item is hollow, like most pottery vessels, the forms are effectively shells rather than solids.

Each object within the bowl shows either a geometric or an organic bias and many of them are somewhere in between. I have made extensive use of stamps and other techniques to create surface textures before the addition of coloured slips (tinted liquid clay painted or sprayed on). The separate parts are then bisque fired and finally coloured with glaze which deepens the colour and adds the glass like finish and bonds everything together in the final firing.
