For this collection of abstract vessels, the artist distorts the objects so that only a vague hint of the familiar can be seen. The artist uses a collage-like technique in which the fragments are pieced together by intuition and chance. He starts the process by using press moulds and slab building techniques. Whilst the clay is still soft and wet, he tears, folds and distorts it. The materiality of the clay dictates the way in which the folds take shape. The spontaneous orchestration of the various deformed silhouettes starts to embody a frozen moment of movement. The viewer is encouraged to move around the object and study the various relationships between light and shadow, solid and void.
