BLACK FREEFORM CERAMIC SCULPTURE

BLACK FREEFORM CERAMIC SCULPTURE

£380.00

Penny Withers

Black Freeform Ceramic Sculpture handmade by British ceramic artist Penny Withers for AUTHOR

Regular price £380 Sale

Composed by the talented 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 black glaze so not to detract from the beautiful shape.

Why we love this product

There is harmony and balance in this design, through the central vertical axis, which is rather calming and reassuring.

Penny Withers' beautiful 'freeform' ceramic sculptures are elegantly rippled and twisting, the fluid shape giving a feel of continuous movement in a vortex.

Penny 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 Penny's hands 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 wonderful and unique personality. Each one could displayed alone or as a set, with the tall freeform, twisted freeform and white bird sculptures in their complementary sizes arranged together (as shown photographed). Try contrasting the black and white finishes to make a really strong visual statement.
