The Refuge Series was made in response to tiny pots made by Lucie Rie in the Crafts Study Centre Collection.
Amongst these was a porcelain vase with simple sgraffito decoration of vertical lines. Lines painted or drawn through a manganese glaze on the surface of fence poles created a further layering of reference.
Boundaries. Borders. Barriers. Barricades.
These small scale sculptures, resembling fences or huddled figures speak of the movement of people, displacement and dis-belonging.
