Soda fired pots made for use taking inspiration from utilitarian architecture, mechanical devices and spirals in nature.

My work over the last 20 years has been about making pots that work well in use and add something unique to a table where food is shared.

Dee Barnes

My creative process is guided by intuition, allowing the clay to dictate its own path and the shape of each piece to influence its decoration. This organic approach infuses a sense of spontaneity and authenticity into my work, resulting in pieces that possess both artistic allure and functional appeal. Working in small batches, I specialize in crafting one-of-a-kind pieces, ranging from candelabras, vases, and bottles to plates and dishes. Embracing a naïve and narrative painterly style, I find inspiration in the simplicity and charm of traditional folk art, Staffordshire figurines and the Georgian era.

 My sketches, my conversations with people and the Feminine and Pagan Mythos form powerful influences. When working I surround myself with notes, drawings, and loud music. Once I start manipulating the clay body, the result is a collaboration between my hands and the clay itself; it picks up my gestures and moods, responding and revealing itself. The tactile qualities of clay allow me to make dramatically changes as the final sculpture or drawing evolves. This process brings me joy and I hope that joy is conveyed within the final piece ”

I’m from Finland but now I live in the Lake District, in Cumbria. Lakes, forests, ancient places and the sea are all important to me. My sculptural and functional forms and mark-making reflect and reference where I live.

Jennie McCall

Jennie’s professional background was Graphic Design and illustration but her career in most recent years has turned to developing her skills as a sculptor. Inspired by myth and nature Jennie uses stoneware and porcelain clay with hand-building techniques to create figurative sculptures, human and animalia that focus on simple form with intuitive gestural touches both in the making and the glazing.

My work has a strong connections with landscape; the natural characteristics of the earth such as strata in cliffs, rock outcrops, stones, craggs, all formed by the forces of nature rather than human hand. Embracing the Japanese concept of ‘wabi-sabi’ – the acceptance and appreciation of beauty in imperfection – my work is concerned purely with aethetics rather than functionality.

Jeremy James makes sculptures of people and creatures in high-fired ceramic. The work ranges from the observation of animals and birds watched directly in the wild to human figures that appear to inhabit a world similar to our own, yet oddly different. Their lively modelling and dynamic composition characterise all of Jeremy’s work.

I hand-build ceramic art in a small studio in South Cowal, Scotland. My work is inspired by ice and water from my time spent working as an oceanographer researching in the Arctic. After three and a half years immersed in the world of fractured ice I have been inspired by the interactions between warming oceans and shrinking glaciers. I make a range of unique sculptural forms representing icebergs, glacial landscapes, and monoliths.

My Joy is colour, form and texture. Inspiration comes from nature, particularly plants and natural formations. Clay is the perfect medium to create pieces of all shapes and sizes for indoors and outdoors. I look at the love and care plants need in addition to what will enhance its beauty.

I also incorporate my food and cookery background, creating practical but quirky homeware. My desire is to make unique pieces that can bring pleasure for their individuality rather than continuity. My ceramic journey is a learning curve and I am enjoying the ride.

David-Wright

David Wright

David Wright hand builds pots from coils or ropes of clay. The slow method of working, beating and scraping the surface allows the form to be modified whilst building. Each pot is therefore very individual, it possesses a unique character with a distinct textural surface. The pots are glazed with simple ash glazes made from the ashes of different woods; traditional Shino glaze is also used to give warm reds and oranges.

Finally the pots are fired in a wood fuelled kiln to about 1300°c; the flame and ash from the fire give their colours and warmth to the work.

Sharon-Griffin-Profile-1-1536x1287

Sharon Griffin

Sharon uses the human figure to help communicate a sense of deeper meaning within humankind and of her own experience of being a woman. The sculptures represent a state of being; internal struggles of love, loss, displacement, vulnerability and strength.

Using hand-building techniques, Sharon intuitively works with the human form, face and heads as a 3D canvas, allowing each individual piece to evolve organically.
The highly textured surfaces are achieved by working into the raw, un-fired clay, with a variety of slips, found oxides, synthetic body stains and glaze before being once fired using an electric kiln.

Nature inspired decorative rhythms

 

Nature is blessed with both predictable and chaotic rhythms, which is highly fortunate because our very survival depends upon it. We are presented with daily vistas that show perpetual motion through the movement of light, shadows, currents, waves, breezes and a myriad of natural kinesis. Shape, colour and perspective are continually stimulated to reveal a sublimity of designs and it’s easy to see why many artists have expressed how they are deeply influenced by the innate beauty and rhythms of nature.

The symbiosis between the artist and the natural world is obvious and the constant flux of the elements is forever feeding this lively dynamic. From sunrise to dawn, throughout the changing seasons, a vast array of colours and moods all contribute to this inspiration and it’s remarkable how we are gifted with such a rich display of natural art. Its easy to grasp why the forces of nature are often referenced as a source of inspiration to artists.. Patterns, textures, form, colours, light and shade are all used to reflect movement and its associated rhythms.

 Jung claimed that nature is a symbol of spirit while the philosopher Thomas Aquinas observed that the divine reveals itself in nature. Pythagoras of Samos (570-495BC) stated that there is geometry in the humming of strings, there is music in the spacing of spheres.”

The elemental Chineses Animals are on a 60 year rotation so the last time we had the very feminine Water Rabbit leading into the creatively potent Wood Dragon was 1963/64. That era was an extraordinary time of emboldened artistic flow and innovation, introducing new rythyms, both musically and visually.

  This post will be an exploration of art that might be again alluding to that exceptional direction of lively rythyms in design and structure with soul enriching art, similtaneously considering the influence of the rhythms of the natural world in decorative choices.

Julie Woods-'My Grandmothers Country

Julie Woods – ‘My Grandmothers Country’

Australia’s indigenous inhabitants sometimes deliberatly walk lightly on the ground, their gentle steps being a display of their recognigition of the perfection of our earth and its elements and the contribution it makes to maintaining the balance between strength and vulnerability, while sustaining the natural order.

They revered their ‘Country’ as a living entity, which sustains all life and exists as a product of their Creator Ancestors.

Another was the arrival of a Huntswoman with her silk sack of spiders on the canvas blind outside my window. She stayed there for 21 days with dedicated devotion and didn’t even leave them for feeding herself. This was followed by witnessing the arrival of 34  babies out of the silk. All up about a 7 week gestation.

Boho  flair and flamboyamt floral flirtations raged in the 60’s The floral aesthetic featured strongly with the Flower Power designs attempting to introduce more gentleness as a counter balance to the harshness of war. I’m wondering whether we will see a new type of kombucha kindness manifesting against the current turmoil.

‘I aim to express both the power and fragility of nature using materials from the earth, with an interplay between the monumental forms and delicate, complex surface textures.

Landscape is my source; more the accumulation of recollected impressions than particular sites: the weathered surfaces, textures and subtle colours of the Australian bush and patterns in the cultivated landscape.

Vintage Vogue on location

 

The innovative design trajectory of the lively, free flowing, colouful and expressive fashion that evolved during the 50s/60s was demanding to be elevated with a more dynamic presentation and the photographers responded to the challenge with aplomb. During this era it was a visual experience to behold, witnessing chic models wearing shimmering, bold, stylishl garments lensed by brilliant photogrphers while juxttaposed against ancient monuments in exotic, distant locations or exciting street scenes.

Editor-in-chief at Vogue US, Diana Vreeland, commisioned photographers like David Avedon, Horst P Horst, Henry Clarke and Irving Penn to travel to foreign countries like South-America, Spain, and Africa adding a fresh dynamism to fashion editorials This was an instrinsic extension to her previous work as a stylist with Louis Dahl-Wolfe, who was an integral trailblazer and gifted visionary in the development of a new era in fashion photogrpahy. This  included favouring natural outdoor light, candid spontaneity in the model poses, the inclusion of designs focused on form and line along with refined composition and balance and more muted colour palletes. She developed a rich vein of exceptional photographic images which helped to liberate the visual arts from the confines of the studio and introduce a sophisticated glamour, presented with a more relaxed sense of style and freedom. which is still a couture de force till this day.

The following photos highlight the photograhers that contributed to this reshaping of the fashion narrative and visual culture that was launched during this highly unique era.

Sculptures highlighted by uplifting locations of lakes, rivers and the ocean.

 

Being a Year of Water Rabbit, which is recognized as one of the most powerful combinations in the Chinese Zodiac, I am continuing my focus on the creative fluidity that is enlivened by the presence of the embracing water element with a collection of sculptures presented in various water enviroments.

Also a 5 minute video of a journey into a exremely remote location in the Kimderley region of North West Australia featuring pure spring waters.

Rabbit blue lake in middle of OZ

 

Despite being the Year of the Rabbit, bunnies weren’t really on my radar, having already done a feature post on the refined rabbit. Recently, while indulging in an arial landscape foray for gong shi exploration, I had a chance sighting of an intruiging rabbit lake in the centre of Australia. It was in an auspicious location due to its proximity to Mount Wedge and Pupanya (origin of Indiginous Aussie Art from bark to canvas). This acted as a visual catalyst that motivated me to take a closer look into the Rabbit Year 

As this year is associated with the Water Rabbit, which only comes every 60 years, the last time this happened was in 1963, right on the cusp of an era of  cultural and artistic revolution.The Water Rabbit arouses artistic fluidity, creative virility, feminine flexibility, moderation, balance and moving with the flow. 

At this time the Beach Boys were launching their  breezy Surf Music mania and wave motion imagery was becoming very popular. Even ocean symbolic, shark fin designs were appearing as a frequent feature on most cars cruising around in the sixties. The bold sea sail architectural statement of the Sydney Opera House was also opened in 1963.

Miro, Jackson Pollock, Guido Gambone, Robert Crumb and numerous artists had introduced a freewheeling flow and spirit in their works, emboldened by a carefree abandon. So many shackles were suddenly shed, releasing an irrestistable spirit of freedom which kept expanding along with the far reaching musical innovation and genre fusion unleashed from Coltrane, Hendrix, The Beatles, Miles Davis and countless others in this artistically fertile decade.

 

 

Vivid-Sydney-2019

The currently unique combination of the Water Rabbit, the emergence of Neptune and the beginning of a new Jupiter Grand Transit (2020) is a potent mix for spiritual illumination. I’m now anticipating a new phase of cultural expansion and creativity becoming imminent. I don’t beleive we can assimilate another ride as wild as the last time but I feel there will be a more nurturing component of rejuvination, creative healing, sustanence and preservation. 

Enjoy this collection inspired by rabbits, feminifience, calming beauty, ochre orange, trippy blue palletes, ethereal spontaneous flow and good fortune.

— “This dot art piece was inspired during the time of 12/12 /2020 as it was a pinnacle time due to  many stars aligning in our solar system and the dormant energy of the serpent under Uluru rising again. Mother earth is changing and she is waking up in many areas on the planet and Uluru. The centre is the Emotional Chakra of the Earth, waking the dormant serpent to assist with clearing trauma within the consciousness for healing humanity.” — Alexander Calamei

Eight legged creatures like the octopus and the spider (and their web) are worthy of contemplation  because they can guide you beyond entrapement from your deep past. The intricate webs and tentacles being symbolic of the entanglement that can bind us. That’s why traditionally they are known to free emotional and creative blocks. As a new era of inner freedom is now emerging, its a great time for some serious release.

The bunny luck was working for Herbie in 1963 (Rabbit Year) when he acquired this Cobra car on a whim in NY for $6000, with money from his paycheck from his huge hit ‘Watermelon Man’. He had also just recorded a song called King Cobra, which he described as an attempt to “expand the flow [of jazz tunes and chords] so that it would go in directions beyond the usual” This was the beginning of  his expanding journey into fusion music that also included building the Funk genre in the 70’s. He still owns the Cobra, currently worth 2 $million.

Alluring clayart emphasis using the black and white, monochromatic aesthetic.

 

The heightened contrast that is inherent in monochromatic imagery possesses a unique charm and attraction. The enhanced vivacity and extreme tonality of designs in black and white encourages a refreshing perception and appreciation of the emboldened shape and lines that emerge. Becoming confronting and raw, this leads to a sharper definition and clarity, creating the presence of a more definative statement.

Pattern and textures become more enlivened with the higher contrast and the reduced distractions that occur from the absence of colours.

We are constantly reminded of this phenomenon by the natural appearance of shadows and their ability to display a stark contrast, creating a minimilist appearance that can be very captivating.

Here is a compilation of art displaying the enticing emphasis that is possible using a black and white aesthetic.

I remember my old people. When I was young they all had scarring from initiation on their bodies. Every clan group had their own pattern. I remember my old people painting their bodies with red and white ochre. They painted their bodies every day. You knew what clan group belonged to because of the pattern they painted on their bodies. Nowadays we still paint up only when we dance.

Emu (Wurrpaṉ) tracks lead to and from the nest within the vertical and horizontal bands. The Wurrpaṉ’s food (yukuwa) bush berries is also represented. These elements are all part of Gupapuyŋu yaraŋu (public) cosmology.

Leenaert discovers her designer trajectory in Morocco

 

As a creative free spirit, lured by the abundance of sunshine, arid climes, swaying palms and the rich artisan tradition of the North African Maghreb, Laurence Leenaert arrived in Marrakesh on an intuitive wim and a prayer carrying not much except her sewing machine and a desire for more exotic artistic expression. Maybe she was seeking inspiration from a distant, orientalist mystique similar to the likes of Matisse, Delacroix, Laurent and Lichfield. This spontaneous decision has proved to be very fortuitous because she now has a burgeoning design empire manifested from a love for the local tribal arts and their traditional materials, while managing to encounter the right people at the right time. This also included applying her natural design talents and the knowledge that she aquired from past studies in Fashion Design at Kask, in Ghent and a productive internship at Bless in Berlin.

 

lrnce-paintings-shens

‘Shens’ painting  — LRNCE

 

Favouring rich, grounded, earthy palettes, highlighted by freewheeling, minimalist line drawings in Piccaso, Miro modernist styles while infused with Morrocan tribal patterns and ritualistic symbols, Leenaerts multidisciplinary designs exude a joy and respect for the local artisans she readily embraced. Her diverse product line now includes textiles, ceramics, clothing, wall hangings, rugs and furniture based on impulsive, resorceful local collaborations, beautifully handcrafted by a broad collection of resident artists.

Founded in 2013, LRNCE has become the lifestyle brand that Leenaert had dreamt of while back in Belgium and has astutly brought into fruition.

Liberation from The Tyranny of the Inevitable

 

Amanda Ward - At The Top

Amanda Ward – ‘At The Top’

 

Marvelous melange of uplifting clayarts.

 

Presenting a collection of inspired ceramic creativity, unleashed by artists with an innate instinct for free expression, zaniness and feel-good originality. Kitchy clay constructs beyond any pretence that invite you to embrace life by virtue of their frivolous flirtations of flair and brilliance.

A celebration of those who dare to promote a shift in the paradigm to deliver an enriching fullfilment for the aficionados of the quirky, surreal and audacious. During challenging times, indulging in art that’s infused with a free spirit of creative abandon is invariably uplifting and therapeutic. Saluting all worshipers of the whimsy and flamboyant.

Picasso – ‘Taureau’ terracotta charger plate. 1957

 

Since his childhood in Spain, Pablo Picasso was an avid fan of bullfighting. He was captivated by the intense interaction between the bull and the matador, the flashy machismo and the theatrical drama. He used the Banderilleros (bullfighters} and bulls as subject matter in numerous paintings, sculpture and ceramic art, displaying his exceptional virtuosity.

10 June to 20 October,2022

 

‘The Picasso Century’ charts the remarkable career of Pablo Picasso in dialogue with the many artists, poets and intellectuals with whom he intercepted and interacted throughout the 20th century. Exclusively developed for the NGV by the Centre Pompidou and the Musée national Picasso-Paris, the exhibition features close to 90 works by Picasso alongside over 100 works by more than 50 of his contemporaries. Extraordinarily productive until the age of  91, Picasso bestrode the modernist era like a colossus.

Praying Mantis dancing on Divine Breath

 

 

What a remarkable array of creatures with artistically diverse designs our planet has been blessed with

Sun-loving-Miinnie-and-Azure

Morning-sun worship – Minnie and Azure

 

I could see by the way that Minnie and Azure were relishing the early morning sun that it was shining sumptuously. It looked so enticing it made me extrememly motivated to get in the garden, bathe in some sunshine and do the garden maintenance. My meandering, eliptically shaped diosma bush was in dire need of a trim so I began its manicure with some long secateurs.

To my surprise I noticed that a praying mantis, displaying remarkable courage, had come to say hello while I was chpping away. As I was standing there admiring his/hers delicate form and vivid jade colour, it started vibrating enthusiastically on the branch. Filled with deep wonder, I was then amazed when it began to sway on the branch, rocking side to side, giving me the impression that a breeze was blowing, yet I couldn’t feel any sensation of air movement. I grabbed my phone and took a snap (see above) as a testimony to the Sunday morning celebratory solar shuffle of the praying mantis, who had flirted with its mortality to pay a visit.

Sometimes I use the symbiotic combination of fresh diosma mixed with lemon Tea tree for enhancing my breathing. Another great combo is fresh lavender and eucalyptus leaves.

 Observing the Sounds (or Cries) of the human World (Kwan Yin translation)

 

I had just finished wrapping up a photoshoot with a model at my home studio and had decided to unwind and meditate. Gradually I began to hear a clicking sound and when I opened my eyes I noticed a cicada, perched on the third eye of my Kwan Yin statue in front of me. I had never seen a cicada in my home before and as I was wondering how it got there, while also admiring its innate sense of symmetry, it suddenly startled me by flying towards me and brushing me between the eyes. Then it proceeded to walk around me as I was sitting cross-legged on the rug, while still making a clicking sound. Welcome to the mystical cicada world.
