CERAMIC FREEDOM – ASHLEY HOWARD

CERAMIC FREEDOM – ASHLEY HOWARD
April 1, 2012 Clementina
Studio life is going on – hectically – finishing orders which have to be delivered before Easter. The work being made is pretty much what I usually do in the studio…always – still – exciting, challenging, disappointing, wonderful with all the facets that making ceramics invites.
In the meantime – I have been looking at the work of other makers whose ceramics I love and find inspiring. Previous post about Sylvia Zotta I found particularly exciting in her use of colour. 
Today I am inspired by the freedom of form and surface treatment in the ceramics (shown here) of British ceramist, Ashley Howard.
He uses the clay in the way a dancer dances a dance – with ease and grace, complemented with spontaneous details of colour on the surface…aah what freedom, seemingly so simple and yet surely a result of many years of developing such skill and understanding of form and technique.
