Blue & White

These white earthenware pieces are all hand painted with traditional cobalt oxide and have images of domestic plants and birds found in my garden during lockdown 2020. The peace and tranquillity offered by these dramatic circumstances enables me to be very productive creatively and to take inspiration from the daily life of nature outside my window.

The Syrian medicine jars are forms based upon the Albarello Jars that were made in Syria in the 15th Century. The jars symbolise the pain caused through war in the region in recent years and how in the West we should be helping heal this. The Covid-19 pandemic highlighting the need to connect with others during challenging times.

All have food safe glazes.
