Segmented Forms

About this project

The work is made in sections and saggar fired using fragments of beach driftwood. They are part of a series of pieces to be installed in the Steam Museum, where my studio is based. I have always considered the Museum to be a special location, but wanted to delve further into its creative atmosphere. Museum collections have always been integral to my creative practice. I wanted to respond to the place, the building and its collection with a series of hand built sculptural pieces.
