Blue and White
My “Blue and White” series are transfer decorated tableware, reminiscent of Willow, Delft and the decorative dinner sets and cups and saucers of my childhood. For several generations my family owned a hardware business and some of the special pieces found their way home. Amongst my favourites are the blue and white. In my own “Blue and White” I assemble combinations of transfers on the surface of my thrown and slab formed forms. Many of the resulting works are one-offs. Tiles, trivets, sushi plates, serving dishes and platters, mugs, tea-bowls, jugs, sugarbowls, rice bowls, noodle bowls and salad bowls are the main pieces. Some recently fired buttons are the latest blue and white addition.
