rachel grimshaw ceramics

i do not frequently show non-functional ceramic art but i make the exception here for the minimally dynamic collection from uk artist rachel grimshaw. these slab-built pieces were inspired by architecture and natural forms found in arid desert areas, and are crafted from unglazed stoneware. i love the way the gritty textured pieces push and pull so nicely together.

    the texture makes them look like felt or paper, as if they would be weightless. the surprise that they are stoneware and therefore heavy somehow delights me. lovely forms.

    hi sosser,

    this is a very thoughtful observation! it definitely could be thick felt if we didn’t know any better.
