Memento Mori/ Tempus Alison Lowry I am interested in textiles, especially clothing. Fabric can capture the essence of its maker, preserve traces of the wearer, and create a ‘second skin’ of memory. It is the translation of textiles into glass, a material that can be similar in its ethereal properties, which is at the core of my practice.
This is a slab built and marked slipware pot by Barry Stedman using a red earthenware body. The pot has then been covered in a white slip and decorate with blue and black slips. A section of the decorated area remains unglazed.
