1st August - 24th October 2015

 

Solo showcase by ceramicist Paul Jackson.

 

This series of pots focuses on the recent development of a new range of slips and patterns.  The resulting decoration has given Paul the freedom to be able to paint directly on to the pots in a more abstract and painterly way, layering colours to create a tapestry of incidental tones and impressionistic brush work. Named ‘Madrugada’ (meaning dawn in Portuguese), this collection hopes to give an impression of the vibrancy and warmth of the Mediterranean.

 

The unique character of Paul's work derives from two interrelated processes. Each piece is first thrown on the wheel, then subtly altered in form – giving the pot an individual character and strength defined by a journey of discovery. The journey continues during decoration, where the pot’s elegance and sense of balance grow directly out of Paul’s concern for harmony between form, colour, and the painted surface.
