Two ships with a pink iceberg
Photographer: Anne Barrell
There is a naive quality to the decoration. I was commissioned to make some large dishes referring to a trip to Greenland and it set off a whole range of imagery.
Linocut ship platter
Photographer: Anne Barrell
Soft painterly glazes break on the form and decoration to highlight the warmth of the red earthenware clay.
Ships in a tree lined harbour
Photographer: Anne Barrell
A large dish with painterly decoration. There is also a lot of detail on the back.
