Small Winged Cat Bowl 3: ceramic sculpture

£55.00

111 gm
mixed clays and oxides
Sold

Description:

Standing on three stumpy legs this little curio is made from a variety of clays. The cat is incised with graphic motifs. The whole piece is decorated with oxides and has undergone multiple firings before being waxed.

Unusually for me I have made three almost identical examples. Actually I made four but one has already found a home and one didn’t survive the multiple firings!

This is number three.

Weight 111 gm
Dimensions 8 × 8 × 7.5 cm
Care Instructions:

Due to the use of oxides and waxes do not use for foodstuffs.

Story:

This little bowl has the look of an artefact that has or has had a significant but unfathomable use..
There are many stages of construction and decoration along with multiple firings to create the scorched and distressed look of the finished work.

Derek Matthews is a Selected Member of The Craft Potters Association.

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

Working on one piece at a time, every piece he creates is totally unique.

“My output is low and slow”

“I work with a variety of clays into which I often add other fragments of 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.”

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

Derek was once described as “Possibly one of the UK’s most successful illustrators that no-one has ever heard of.” For more than forty years, with agents in London ,Tokyo and Toronto he created work for a raft of top flight international and UK clients. The Snappy series of children’s books he illustrated won several awards, sold more than 13 million copies worldwide and even managed an American number one best seller.
