42POTS is my ceramic project.
I make functional stoneware vessels. My aim is to create ceramics that have both visual and tactile appeal. I’m interested in exploring textures and concentric patterns found in Nature when decorating my pots.
Each piece is a one-off, hand thrown on the wheel and decorated with hand built pieces, before being bisque-fired, glazed and re-fired. I like experimenting with multiple layers of glazes and how they react to the textured surface creating some interesting shades.
Inspiration and influence
I’m inspired by the work of Axel Salto and Kate Malone, Karl Blossfeldt fantastic photographs, Roberto Burle Marx beautiful gardens and tropical landscapes, Bossa Nova and pineapples.
