Abstract

'Glass and Clay' is an initiative between Sunderland and Washington DC artists, facilitated by the Sister City Agreement between the two cities.
This new work which has been made in response to my research undertaken in the developing world potteries. The latest work draws influence from industrial functional design. The structured line of every day utilitarian steel objects, often used in India instead of pottery, has been recreated in thrown porcelain, an expensive and precious material which changes the context in which the forms are seen and celebrates the skills needed to make handmade ceramics.
