Molly Marsh

This work is inspired by the concepts of freedom, balance and space. Using grogged earthenware clay I hand built these pieces over the period of a couple of months. Keeping the clay as thick as I could, I wanted to work in an audacious way with the clay so kept my clay at least 1.5cm thickness throughout. Taking inspiration from Richard Serra and Santiago Calatrava’s work, I love how they both create sculptures that have a sense of openness to them and the finish appears sleek, so this is something I tried to focus on throughout creating my work. I used blue/green and natural toned glazes to enhance my idea of balance, I aimed to use calming colours. The freedom and space element in my work are reflected through the joins, each section can stand alone and is a movable object.
