Clunes artist statement.

Long Draw” is a triptych of three clay vessels, slip cast with porcelain on a ubiquitous interior space,

and painted with hand mixed stains and glazes. The vessels’ surfaces are dreamlike with hues

shrouded in tone. These hues are reminiscent of a time passed; a part of life which is no longer the

day to day.

In contemporary life, forms, hues and tones, and materials, are often believed to belong to specific

decades. In our now post-manufacturing urban areas, made surfaces are noticed to have left their

imprint and perpetuate ideas and beliefs long afterwards. The history might arise in a paint layer

peeping through a crack, a drip, or a shearing of surface which reveals its place in time.
