Having been to the Corvi Mora exhibition of Gordon Baldwin I came home inspired to try and re-create the pots he make but in my style. You look at a piece and things are not easy to explain or understand; the rough edges, the uneven surfaces, the application of colour, the mediums he uses for colour, the emotional impact, the sheer beauty, the inspiration, the building process etc.
You just marvel at each piece and wonder. So I am making a piece that uses some of his ideas, not to copy but in tribute of his genius.
The images go from basic shape to adding pieces of clay, then to the application of black slip and finally white slip. How to add colour and designs from the bisque phase we will soon see. Let’s get through bisque first though.
