"This exhibition draws inspiration from the shell vases popular in the 1950s, known as 'studio ware'. They were often the product of small workshops with a limited mould run, identified only by an initial or mould number."
"Working directly from the 'ware' that friends and I have collected, my intention is to enlarge and re-work the forms, linking them back to my own work. The process will involve making a new series of moulds and then researching the glazes and techniques appropriate to the period. A particular interest is to develop a stucco-like ceramic finish."
