£400
Black Stoneware Sculptural Form III is a minimalist decorative piece by ceramicist Bronwen Grieves inspired by mid-century modernist objects.

Bronwen's sculpture is inspired by her surroundings, both organic and man-made, as well as modernist forms and architecture.She allows the aesthetic of the piece to develop during the making process. The simple finish of the item and restrained application of the slip is purposefully utilitarian in style, referencing industrial machinery such as water towers and dockside machinery.

Process

The sculpture is built up using flattened coils of grogged stoneware clay, incised with vertical or horizontal lines and decorated with white slip and oxides. The slip is then rubbed down to reveal the lines and rough texture of the clay, referencing a sense of industrial abandonment and natural weathering.
