Description:

As with nearly all my creatures I made this bird from a single “sheet” of rolled clay.
I design a paper template and then cut the clay to shape and then gently fold, squeeze and encourage it into life.
I have kept to a restricted pallet of blue and white oxides brushed and stippled onto the mixed terracotta of the body clay between multiple firings.

Derek Matthews: Crackingpots

Many of my ceramics start with a narrative that’s either imagined, half remembered, carefully researched or commissioned.

My output is low and slow. I will occasionally return to a theme but, unless specifically designed as a set, every piece I create is totally unique.

I am always interested in taking on commissioned work especially of a commemorative nature.

A love of whimsy, folk art, religious and tribal art and my background as an illustrator, all go into the mix.

I work with a variety of clays into which I often add other fragments of additional material.
These ”inclusions” plus the use of oxides and multiple firings add to the alchemy and often give the clay a distressed or patinated surface.

Once described as “Possibly one of the UK’s most successful illustrators that no-one has ever heard of” Derek Matthews has worked for a raft of top flight clients from Tokyo to Toronto. The Snappy series of children’s books he illustrated sold more than 13 million copies worldwide including an American number one best seller.
