Strong Westward: 18.9: Stoneware, 48 cm high, 23 cm wide. The title references Westward Ho! but also the idea of going westward. I used that idea quite a lot in the titles for these pieces that are inspired by shells and other coastal forms and colours. This took three firings to get it right, and slips include the one I make from the clay on Westward Ho! beach, and a blue green and also discus blue slip. I also used a little yellow glaze on some of the edges. This piece has now been sold. I hope it’s new owners enjoy it as much as I did!
