Teeny Tiny Ceramics

30 Mar
9 small ceramic crucibles.

Here are nine tiny little fired clay crucibles, decorated with oxides and glazes and fired in a portable Japanese raku kiln. I made them back last summer, during a bit of a break in the lockdown restrictions, when I took part in a pottery project headed up by ceramicist Esther Ley as part of Swansea University’s Copperopolis programme and the 9-to-90 Creative Community. There were dozens of people participating and hundreds of the little crucibles and they’ve been travelling around various exhibitions but now they’ve come home. I’ve no idea what to do with them though.

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the antique taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these vintage artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

To buy my work on the Swansea Print Workshop site please click the image to the left.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.

    If this post were back in the 60’s or 70’s, I would have answered your question with “ashtrays”…but I am sure you will find a better use for them!
