After a shockingly long hiatus, we’re about to send some new work to CAA. We have concentrated on the new unglazed coloured clay pieces. This work started a year ago with our British Ceramics Biennial entry then we showcased it earlier this year at CAL. I think it is some of our most successful work in combining function with abstract graphics. Our design process is always one of gradual, successive fine tuning over a long period. We’ve been honing the colour palette and developing our favourite motifs.
We’ve finished the two teasets which we’re sending to Stoke for the British Ceramics Biennial. The one on the top shelf is mainly unglazed (“naked”) with minimal abstract decoration on coloured stoneware clay. The one on the lower shelf is porcelain, mainly glazed, in three neutral colours.
We’re totally delighted with them – the naked set is dynamic and strong and the porcelain set is so refined and serene.
Tilla August 29th
We have been selected for the British Ceramics Biennial. Work by twenty two shortlisted makers will be exhibited in Stoke on Trent. Our entry will be two teasets: one glazed, one “naked”.
