Wall Pieces & Platters

A bowl can just be a simple thrown bowl, a platter a simple thrown platter….But, somehow, I feel that the beauty of clay can get lost in a perfectly thrown bowl/platter.

The beauty of finding the perfection in imperfection is something totally captivating.

The platters I create are simple clay slabs that are placed over a sump mould. These sump moulds are sometimes large stones that are around me, or can be a ball, cloth bundles, anything I can lay my hands on. Depending on the sump mould I select, the platter is completely new and different.

None of them are perfectly symmetrical or balanced. They all have variations and imperfections that I love to see in my work.
