Consists of five stoneware ceramic flowers (wheel thrown & manipulated) which rest upon an assortment of found and inherited timber pedestals that act as stem-like structures of various heights.
Philosophically the work acknowledges that one form rests upon the foundation of another.
A cluster of flower-like sculptures, together inspiring a garden of form upon form, life upon life – bring together the hand-made and the ready-made, the old and new, the past and the present.
The base of the ceramic components were thrown on the potter’s wheel. By gently pushing and pulling at the wet clay at the rim, curvaceous impressions inspire a visual momentum, movement, ‘life’.
From the raw materials came a soulful expression – myself as object. Now fired and matured I observe my position paused within art, delicately perched ‘in bloom’ upon shaky foundations.
Vulnerable, fragile, beautiful… impermanent as a wild flower in nature.
A work in progress is all about the journey without needing to know the final outcome…
