Gum Delirium

A new series of small, totemic vessels, part psychedelic cartoon character and part chewed gum, meeting something ancient, recognisable and grounding. Each piece is handmade by pinching clay into a shape, and represents an abstracted sense of time and place that the ancient world, the dream world, and the real world inhabit together. Made out of a custom stoneware, and glazed with a pulpous bubble-gum crawl glaze.

Pieces in the studio before they are glazed

The green chrome-based glaze will be pink once fired.
