Immerse #1

Summary

Immerse #1 is the result of challenging personal boundaries, both artistically and psychologically.

 

At its core it focuses on two key notes; the inclusion of white as a colour and diaganol and horizontal red slashes across the pot to denote a subterranean landscape, exploring liberation through expression. The red slashes are there to stimulate as well as unsettle the viewer. They're untidy, slightly ungainly and act to interrupt the viewing process.

 

"From an artistic point of view I'm interested in visual disturbance and flaws, as this often leads to a new tecnique or way of seeing something".

A hand coiled vase Immerse #1 took approximately 17 hours to make in total. Immerse #1 is made up of multiple layers of oxides, glazes and stains, and focuses on glaze interaction referencing a constant sense of flux.
