perspectives

Hand thrown, twisted and carved these pieces investigate the effects of perspective; you cannot see the whole piece in one glance. The angle, height and position affects the shapes, lines, and ultimately form you see.  Change your perspective and you see different contours, lines and connections.

     

Even these seemingly ‘simple’ forms have many versions as the perspective changes.

     

The forms themselves are inspired by the South Downs where I live and walk everyday.  The throwing marks and carved lines in the pieces are inspired by the chalk paths, tracks and furrows that guide you across the landscape.
