Unruly

Ceramic 60cm x30cm x26cm

From Inbetween-ness at the Spode Factory site in Stoke on Trent for the British Ceramics Biennial in 2017.

Unruly formed part of a series titled ‘Inbetween-ness’ made in response to an in-between state of consciousness. I was exploring the liminal distressed elegance of the Spode factory space. Drawn to the ragged shapes and the traces of production burned deep into the fabric of the factory walls, traces of it’s history gouged upon the ceiling and into the floor.

From Inbetween-ness

I form relationships between my work to create a dialogue. It is a language that springs from the unconscious, a correlation between thought and medium – a piercing, layering and collaging of surfaces that communicate differences, imperfections and an inbetween-ness.

Created intuitively in response to the Spode Factory. The textured surface is drenched in an oil spot glaze originating from the Song dynasty in the 9th Century.
