Square Vases

 

The "square" shapes are inspired by blocks of fields, standing stones and Neolithic tools so relate to the landscape around, but 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.

"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 form simple sheets of clay that work as blank canvases for me to decorate.
