Fusion

These pots are produced from a fusion of the ideas and influences of my work to date.  Old, decayed, distressed and disintegrated objects have made an impact on most of my work.

The pots are based on an amalgam of previous themes with aspects of the sea, coast, weathered rocks and distressed wood and metal being used as starting points for the pots.

Simple forms with a muted, limited palette and random surface textures are at the heart of this work which bind the pots together as a body of work.

Nearly all of the pots have been thrown on the wheel with some having been altered.  The nature of the process means that each pot is unique.  In fact I would find it difficult to make any two the same.
