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.
