British ceramic modernist – James Tower centenary

Fluid Abstract odyssey


Sinuous movement and a transcendent kinesis, inspired by water currents, marine life and the sea are very ubiquitous in James Tower’s sgraffito ceramic decorations, mainly from an underwater perspective. The gentle movement of water reeds, sea forest kelps and other natural abstractions is captured with the use of enticing patterns, rhythm, tension and a fluidity in his ceramic sculptures to create perspectives of sublime motion. His pieces like Nebulae, Sea Piece Opus and Glacier make you feel like you are being drawn you into a submerged Sci Fi like portal, inviting you to float into a fluid tromp e-l’œil dimension.

Tower claimed that his goal was to achieve “a sense of completion to satisfy a longing for a serene harmonious whole, which contains dynamism and vitality, to fulfill our intellectual and spiritual needs.” This was even more poignant to him by the fact that he regarded it as such an elusive quality. At the age of 17, James spent time in Australia and New Caledonia, where it would have been hard to ignore the dynamism of the oceans. He later stated that he searched for ways to convey a sense of integrity, releasing internal, serene and harmonious tensions, in a world where abundant energy remains calm. ‘The objects that I strive to do are  attempts at hymns to the beauty of the natural world’.

A centenary exhibition of this British trailblazer in contemporary ceramic art and sculpture is currently running at the Victoria Art Gallery in Bath, UK, till the 24th November, 2019. This exhibition consists of over 50 works by Tower, dating from the 1930s to the 80s. Many of these works will be on public display for the first time.

Azure allure in Saint Raphael

Numerous artists such as Ceczanne, Monet, Matisse, Corbusier, Capron, Renoir, Massier and Picasso, to name a few, were attracted to the Cote D’Azur for its radiant light, enriching hues and captivating vistas. Ceramicist Lauren Kearns, on a recent visit, was so impressed by the vibrancy of Saint Raphael, nestled between the Massif L’Esterel Mountains and the Mediterranean, that she decided to establish a studio there for herself and visiting resident artists. She discovered that the rugged ochre outcrops, red cliffs, numerous inlets and coves,  juxtaposed against the emerald and azure waters, had an irresistable presence that was very invigorating.

IaRex l’Atelier/IARE studio, St Raphael

Lauren has created a spacious, fully equipped studio environment in a quiet location, bathed in natural light and in close proximity to local markets, cafes and eateries. An invitation has been extended from Lauren to all artists from professional to casual to join her program and interact with other resident artists and participate in some of the workshops while also imbibing the rich culteral heritage and embracing the beautiful, idyllic enviroment.

Saint Raphael is easily accesible to the Nice Airport, directly by bus. By car along the coast it is 1h to Nice, 1hr to Antibes, 40 minutes to Cannes, 1h2 to St. Tropez with many charming villages in between. The train station is in the center of the town, with a train direct to and from Paris. The outdoors is easily accessible, by car and bicycle, as are main European cities by train.

Lauren Kearns


Lauren acts as a surpervisor, instructor, mentor, co-ordinator and artist for the International Artists Residency Exchange in Saint Raphael, bringing 37 years of experience as a ceramic artist.

‘My primary interest in creating is to make objects which are used in daily life, that bring us beauty and joy. I feel that creating objects from hand, in ways that have existed throughout time, is vital and necessary. I hope my work reminds people of the art of the hand made. In the use of objects and appreciation of art, one’s life is enriched, as it serves as a reminder of history and the connections we have to the arts.’

Current and future workshops



Andrew Martin

14th October – 25th October 2019

This workshop will focus on designing and slip casting complex forms with “simple” molds. Our goal is to explore new or latent ideas. Participants should come with a clear goal and willing to take risks. This two-week workshop will be an intuitive and practical exploration of how to work with patterns and molds, beyond the repetition of forms. The emphasis will be on using paper cut-outs to develop forms for molds and casting, and two-dimensional pattern-making for constructing three-dimensional forms.

Lorna Meaden

April 9-18, 2020


In this one-week workshop in Saint Raphael, France, participants will refine and expand their vocabulary of functional form. We will begin with making simple pots for daily use such as cups and bowls. We will move on to stretch our ideas about function, including more complex forms such as pitchers, ewers, scoops, spoons, and serving dishes. While focusing on form, we will explore surface decoration. Investigations of surface will incorporate texture, and line. Our pots will be altered, stamped, and drawn on. We will not miss the chance to absorb the cultural opportunities offered by southern France! All skill levels welcome. Bring your ideas and sense of adventure.

Carol Guthro

May 11 – 22, 2020


In this 10 day week workshop Carol Gouthro will demonstrate her signature Segment Mold Process. Learning Carol’s innovative mold making technique will allow you to incorporate pleated, undulating and expressive forms into your ceramic vessels and sculptures, like those we marvel at in Carol's masterworks. We will also work with wooden drop molds. Carol will demonstrate how to combine, cut and re-assemble shapes to arrive at many differing expressions of form.

We will follow Carol’s rich, multi-layered approach to surface from wet clay, bone dry to bisque. Techniques for creating depth and texture will be explored, including the use of textured skins to wrap forms and clay sprig molds to embellish. Focus on color and pattern will be given through numerous demonstrations using slips, underglazes, stains, wax, shellac and paper patterns. Carol will share the many processes that she has developed in over 30 years of working with clay.

Deb Schwartzkopf

15th October – 26th October 2020

Led by Seattle-based studio potter, instructor, and inspiring artist Deb Schwartzkopf, this exploratory workshop is for everyone working in clay with an interest in tableware. Come and discover the many ways functional forms can be pieced together from thrown and hand-built parts.

Let’s explore tableware. Come design and create your own place setting! This hands-on workshop is a guided, creative time. We will start with a Plate, Bowl and Cup… And then move into vases, pitchers, and platters! Identify and investigate the relationships within and between different forms. How does the plate meet the table? How is the
meal framed? Is the handle comfortable? What gesture are you capturing in your pitcher? There are so many elements to consider in the creative processes of designing and making.

Doug Peltzman

19th April – 26th April 2021

This is a workshop fit for beginner to experienced makers. We will focus in on designing, making, and finishing high fire porcelain tableware in an electric kiln. The relationship between form and surface decoration will be explored through practice, demonstration and discussion. Doug will share his methodologies on carving and inlaying slip into leather hard clay and bisque fired clay. As a group, we will spend time collecting imagery and textures to apply to the surface of our work. We will discuss the meaning and intention behind the pots we make and look to “play” as a way to explore new ideas. Doug will also share his strategies for glazing and making pots to hold runny translucent glazes. This class will provide an array of tools and techniques for using texture, line, and color in your work. Taking your ideas and concepts to the next level can be tricky, together we can share our experiences and help push each other to develop our work beyond our expectations.

Jan Edwards Workshop

Handbuilding Pots for your Table : for All Levels of Experience

30 Apr 2021 – 12 May 2021

Don’t you wish you had a good Fish Platter, or a tall Vase, or perhaps a set of Sushi Plates? You name it… we’ll try to make it. We will spend our time exploring a multitude of ways to make pots for the table…bowls, cups, plates, pitchers, platters, butter dishes, whatever we want to make, without the use of a potter’s wheel.

We’ll use Terra Cotta Clay and colorful slips and stains to embellish our pots… the traditional Mediterranean materials. There’s a cornucopia of decorative techniques to be explored. Your aesthetic will dictate the look, be it classic or crazy, wild or sublime. After our pots are fired in both bisque and glaze firings, they are beautiful and safe to use for food and drink.

Sue Tirrell Workshop

Indelible: Pottery as a vehicle for personal storytelling and expression

14 May 2021 – 23 May 2021

Explore the connection between form, narrative and surface design by drawing, painting and carving on leather-hard clay. Bring a sketchbook of your favorite source material and be ready to incorporate new sensory and cultural influences to create a library of imagery unique to your time in beautiful Southern France! Participants will be guided in the process of distilling these ideas into dynamic, colorful surface design; giving individual stories universal appeal.

This workshop is appropriate for makers of all levels. Participants should be comfortable constructing simple vessel forms or tile—hand-built and/or wheel-thrown—to be decorated in the leather-hard state using sgraffito, mishima, trailing and painting techniques. The pace of the workshop will allow for everyone to explore their own studio practice as well as area attractions such as museums, hiking, beaches and food! Take home a narrative keepsake that can’t be purchased in a tourist shop!

Dancing abstractions in sculpture and clayart



Supine Flames sculpture by Melanie Newcombe

‘Supine Flames’ sculpture by Melanie Newcombe


The radical Cubist art developed at the beginning of the 20th Century by Braques and Picasso was one of the first forms of abstract art. The Cubists challenged conventional forms of representation, such as perspective, which had been the rule since the Renaissance. Their aim was to develop a revolutionary new way of seeing which reflected the streamlined modern age.

Picassos realisation in 1907 that African art had a deeper mission to give expression and form to an artists subconscious forces, in order to confront and conquer their inner fears, stands as one of the motivating factors that triggered the beginning of abstract art. The Cubists inspired many other artists around the same time to break free from the constraints of established art, which had remained the same for centuries. Matisse was also capturing a serenity through simplification of ideas and form, believing details lessened the purity of lines and harmed the emotional intensity. Brancusi was approching his art on a similar tragectory, where he belived the mind recognised form with a more minimalist perspective and saw movement as a flash of spirit, stripped of unessecary detail. Intuitive perception didn’t require too much cumbersome detail to grasp the form of a subject, as it had already filled in the spaces ahead of the intellect.


‘Joy of Dance’   Dan McDermott


Similarily, at the beginning of the 20th century, dance was also undergoing a revolution with the promotion of a spontaneous avant garde style of modern dance. Isadora Duncan was one of the key proponants during the early 1900’s, who toured Europe and America, believing dance to be a luminous expression of the soul. She wasn’t enthralled by the strict disiplines enacted by the European ballet schools and intitially rejected there routines in favour of a more free form dance style. “The beauty of a moving figure lies in its intention, and not in the expertness of its gymnastic.” Other creative dancers like Loi Fuller and Josephne Baker were also touring Europe during this era, promoting free spirited dance expressions of raw, unhinibited movement. Up to the 20th century, theatrical dance was by and large, content to be associated with dramatic spectacles of storytelling.

The evolution of abstract art converged with the introduction of avant garde dance performances at this time, where the shape, energy and rhythm of the expressive powers of dance were conveyed in a more minimalistic manner while combined with poetic abstractions. The risk, chaos and unpredictability of the abstract reflected the motion of dance movement, especially if it was synchopated, free form avant-garde or trance oreintated. The utilisation of line, textures and space in abstract, stylised and semi abstract art adapted nicely to the spirit of artistic dynamic motion.

In this post I am examining the abstract styles in sculpture and ceramic forms and decorations that allude to a free and sponataeous aesthetic conveying the expression of movement, rythym and dance.
