Square Vases and Platters

The "square" shapes are inspired by blocks of fields, standing stones and Neolithic tools but also provide a simple form on which I can "paint". They are solid, sturdy and reliable and look great in groups or just alone holding an informal bunch of flowers or displaying a hedgerow find.

"Slabs" of clay are the ideal canvas for impressions, paper resist and scraffitto and this is what I love about these square forms. They are constructed from simple sheets of clay that work as a blank canvas for me to decorate.
