Exploring the flux between water and the landmass through the sea’s tidal cycle ‘The Rule of Twelfths’.

‘Temporal Rhythms’ A series of abstract ceramic sculptures that are the culmination of a study of the relationship between the seas tides and coastal landmass. A part of the project involved the development of a process to produce a graded coloured grog palette as in ‘Temporal Rhythms’ I,II and III. A second element of the project researched the development of a process using refractory plaster moulds to make components consisting of coloured grogs fused with transparent glaze as in ‘Temporal Rhythms’ IV.

This is a project that wil continue to develop in response to the ongoing research at the coastline that feeds into the technical processes and practice resulting in the finished sculptural works.
