porcelain  15cm 2014

I have often made clocks, but this is my first one in ceramic. Usually I occupy myself with a housing or container for the dial. In this case the dial stands alone, the whole of the clock.

circa 6 x 9 cm porcelain 2014

Something about the thinness of porcelain without color reminds me of bone. This piece is hand-built, combining two one-piece slip casts. The nasal bridge forms a concave handle.

Olmec with Handle

8cm stoneware 2013

I have always been inspired by pre-Columbian sculpture, so I saw fit to make a ceramic version of the kingly Olmec heads.

Though the Olmecs were ceramicists, we're so far unable to find work that relates much to the monumental stone heads. (They seemed to have been fascinated with rotund baby figurines.)

Blue Tor

Blue Tor Johnson
10cm 2014

Though this is a porcelain casting (from my original sculpting) the glazing and high temp firing makes it very much one of a kind. It is almost like skrying, to gaze on the strange rivulets of glaze that have nestled with accident into the skin crevices.
