More details

These glazed ceramics were handmade with the artist’s design reproduced as a relief impression onto wet clay, which was then air-dried for three weeks before being fired and glazed from the same single batch of glaze before being fired again.

David Thorpe’s work is concerned with the relationship between objects and their makers, with a particular interest in the role of craft and labour in handmade design and art. “I'm playing with certain associations,” he has said, “slightly New Age, slightly Space Age, slightly threatening…I'm absolutely in love with people who build up their own systems of belief.” This idea is reflected in works that variously reference modernist principles of object-making, utopian social architecture, Japanese woodblock prints, and Victorian paper-cutting.
