Collection: Paul Taylor : Ceramics : Barry

My work has largely centered on the vessel, using ultra thin slabs of textured terracotta, assembled and fired multiple times aiming to transform very simple materials into pottery that has its own distinctive characteristics. I want to create vessels with interesting configurations, surfaces and textures. I am fascinated by the alchemy that occurs when combining clay, smoke and fire culminating in the often magical changes that occur during the firing process. My work is fired multiple times, the final firing is a low temperature saggar firing with combustible materials producing a range of surprising and often unpredictable outcomes.

I endeavour to explore the full range of possibilities of one simple form, constantly changing it in an effort to magnify its creative potential as much as possible. My aim is to create pottery with an almost classical and timeless quality.
