Tall White Ceramic Freeform Sculpture by Penny Withers for AUTHOR

Regular price £430 Sale

Composed by Penny Withers in her Sheffield studio.

This ceramic piece has been ‘composed’ and thrown on the wheel, creating a beautiful twisty, rippling effect on the body of the pot all the way from its solid base to its slender neck. The porcelain is fired with a pure, plain white glaze so not detract from the beautiful shape.

Why we love this product

A spiralling, elegant, decorative ceramic sculpture.

This maker’s beautiful ‘freeform’ ceramic sculptures are elegantly rippled and twisting, the fluid shape giving a feel of continuous movement in a vortex. There is harmony and balance in the design, through the central vertical axis, which is rather calming and reassuring.

The maker describes her ‘Freeform’ series as: “Fluid sketches in clay, sensuous movement caught in an instant of time.” There is a lightness of touch to her work, and although glazed and fired, the properties of wet clay are still very much apparent in this series of pieces. As such, it is easy to feel a connection with the maker’s hands and fingers through the ripples and marks in the clay, which tell the story of how this sculpture came into being.

The impression of spinning, moving bodies, jaunty shoulders or hips, and quirkily cocked heads give these pieces each a unique personality. Any one could displayed alone or with others from the set, arranging the tall freeform, twisted freeform and white bird sculptures together, as shown photographed, like a group of people chatting. Also try contrasting the black and white finishes to make a really strong visual statement.

What our customers say...

"We required a business gift to be sent to an associate as a thank you. AUTHOR procured, beautifully packaged and delivered the gift with a lovely hand written note. It was done seamlessly and professionally and was so easy, I wasn’t even in the country! I would highly recommend them if you ever required a gift service."
