Elegant, rippling, spinning yet balanced.
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 in our photograph, like a group of people chatting. Also try contrasting the black and white finishes to make a really strong visual statement.
