Clay Prints

« Back to Portfolio

A fascination with the transferral of texture from one surface to another which occurs in the printing process is a key factor in these works. It is a concern which is present throughout all the work, but the Clay Prints can be seen as a purer expression of this.

The fabric on which the pieces of clay are mounted sets up an opposition which draws attention to the coldness and hardness of the clay as it contrasts with the warm softness of the fabric. The fabric also echoes the softness of the clay before its firing when the printing occurred.
