Today I am reflecting on colours and their impact.
As you can see, I love blue, a colour highlighted on Twitter today by my good friend Pauline Hughes who is a very talented sculptural ceramicist. Her fundamental interest is in the figurative and her visually arresting work can be viewed on her Twitter Posts and Website http://www.paulinehughesceramics.com/
This is a piece I made for the Goldsmiths Fair 2014. My inspiration for this enamel on silver beaker was the study of light shadows, blue emerging as the dominant colour theme as I tried to recapture the moment of sunlight through glass.
Colour has impact all the time in fashion and this colour has been in vogue a lot recently. If you are in London you could also check out the latest exhibition at Studio Fusion which highlights BLUE & BLACK.
I am delighted to have been invited to submit a piece of work for the events at Cut in Clerkenwell next month. Although I do not consider myself to be an engraver as such, I do engrave on each piece and the technique is central to the effects that I employ in my enamelling. The engraving under the enamel plays an essential supporting role in the interplay of light, colour and surface.
Cut in Clerkenwell is an exhibition to promote engraving skills and is organized by the Hand engravers Association. The events will be hosted at Craft Central in London and will take place during the week of the 2nd - 8th March 2015 - Please check the websites listed for more information.
