Woodland Floor Vessel

Jacqueline Leighton Boyce
£720
Woodland Floor Vessel by Jacquline Leighton Boyce forms part of a recent body of work inspired by the growth and reproduction of life in English meadows, woodlands and hedgerows during the early summer. This sculptural vessel reflects the wild, undulating foliage which bursts forth and jostles for space within compacted areas, while also playing host to insects and local fauna. The piece is formed from red terracotta clay, handbuilt and illustrated with species of flowers that you might spot in woodlands throughout the UK.

Process

Jacqueline’s ceramics are formed from red terracotta clay and all her work is handbuilt apart from the use of a press mould for plates. To decorate, Jacqueline creates layers of colours and illustrations using slips, underglazes, glazes and metallic lustres.
