  • Launch at aynsley factory
    First pieces were in response to the transfers found in the factory
    Contemporary use of traditional pattern through form dictated pattern
  • Cut plates used as graffiti stencils to tag the building, using existing marks to inspire layout and colour.
  • Fluorescent matt finish jars with the tactility of the original piece, in a way disconnecting the piece from the historical context and pulling it into the 21st century.
  • Introduced to unity
    Young people not so interested in ceramics, but once involved in graffiti, more enthusiastic
  • Experiments in the space - old post office, generously supported
  • Experiments with pattern over form, how breaking up a pattern can make it more abstract, create intrigue and more than the whole.
  • Building up units of a pattern from different sources
    Inspiration comes in many forms
  • Experiments with layout, form and 3 dimensional effect.
    Preparing the walls, plates, outlines
  • Adding colour, understanding how to create depth with the spray paint, controlling the lines over the 3d forms
  • Patterns build up, gain strength in colour and form
    Plates begin to ‘hide’ within the installation
  • Large installation
    Inspiring young people to use ceramics as a method of communicating and exploring their creativity
