About the Item

Emma Bell 73cmx73cmx 7cm Three clays XIII Emma Bell’s ceramic and porcelain Pot Frame – Installation Piece. Emma Bell says: “This piece is inspired by my glaze test vessels. As a potter, I am always staggered by how different the same/similar glaze turns out on different clay bodies when it has been fired.” Blue & white ceramic vessels, some raku & mixture of thrown & slip cast vessels. Size: H:73 cm x W:73 cm Emma Bell studied ceramics at the University College of Ripon & York St John and graduated with a first class honours degree. After the intervening years in which she raised her children, she has now returned to the studio. She is a wheel-based potter, working mainly in stoneware and porcelain. Her present work is defined by simplicity and purity of form and possesses an organic quality which creates a sense of quietness and calm. The search is for symmetry and balance in design, whilst at the same time quietly pushing to the limits the possibilities of the material. In the process a tension is created between the two – the desired shape of the piece and the fineness and fragility of the clay. It is not unusual for Bell's to work at the wheel with her eyes closed, relying on touch alone to know instinctively when the optimum point has been reached. There is a constant interaction of sight and touch, the visual and the tactile. In her bottle series, the design is often extended and elongated beyond the point which can reasonably be sustained by the clay without distortion or collapse- it is at this point that the piece will be completed by hand. It is all about gently advancing balance and boundaries and exploring the techniques which will take the piece to reach its full potential. Emma Bell’s present work is first and foremost about strong form. She uses soft, matt glazes with minimal decoration. There is nothing which can distract the eye from the clean, quiet lines which characterize her work.

  • Pebbles
    By Sam McPherson
    Located in Kansas City, MO
    Artist : Sam McPherson Title : Pebbles, wall installation Materials : Ceramic, black porcelain, steel Date : 2019 Dimensions : 32"x 12"x .5" Description : Wall pebbles are installed with a pin on the back of each piece. These can be installed in your space in any arrangement. Shown is a set including 90 pebbles in a geometric design. Each pebble ranges from .5" up to 3". When installing these I recommend they are approximately 1 to 2 inches apart. To discover the unseen hidden beneath or within an object inspires Sam McPherson to share her imagination and fascination of ‘what could be’. McPherson tries to use these ideas in her work to create something that requires the viewer to invest in the piece to see what it has to offer, to reward curiosity, and to those unwilling to stop and look closely to explore and discover, they may never know.
