Woodland Utensils (Feather)
Woodland Utensils (Feather) forms part of a collection of small ceramic ‘utensils’ and mixed media objects assembled and framed to form three-dimensional collages, made by ceramicist, Elaine Bolt. Elaine’s work is guided by a sense of narrative and steeped in the context of local surroundings. For this series of works, Elaine was inspired by the landscape of the Sussex Downs. She has combined found materials along with hand built porcelain and ceramic objects, blurring the boundaries between the made and found. The artwork is mounted on a board and then framed with stained beech wood without glass.
