About this work:

The theme of this work refers to a recent book I enjoyed, it was called: “Universe” (A journey to the edge of the cosmos). The images bore remarkable similarities to the pit-fired surface of my latest double-walled pieces; pit-firing produces unique colours and patterns resulting from the combination of sulphates, carbonates and combustible materials. In deep space, it seems that the effects I have contrived to produce already exist. This supports my belief that nothing is ever entirely unique - however, the attempt to replicate natural phenomena is one of the challenges I enjoy. It is also one of the most interesting aspects of the vanishing horizon in ceramics.
