Turquoise and ochre glazed porcelain tea bowl Alison Shelton Brown

Vessels and the Hand-made

Through layering porcelain slip, numerous glazes and the odd lustre a deep unpredictable surface emerges from the kiln. Volcanic blisters melt and meld over a range of hand-formed dishes and bottles, blessed by the kiln gods. Textural vessels touched by the lightness of imperfection and spontaneity. Signature marks of the hand celebrate the art of the intuitive brushstroke. Unique objects telling stories with an unmistakable voice.

Bluegreen sea, rippling sand, waves kissing the beach. Azure, ochre, gritty granite, foaming surfaces, memories of childhood places. This is where I play.
