Lost and Found

This sculptural piece is hand-built in black stoneware clay with the addition of rubber, lead, and steel wire. It captures the immediacy of the material and is an instinctive response to the industrial and technological scrap that litters modern life which often goes unnoticed, but in which Ian has elicited the beauty of form and tension.
About this maker
Ian was born in Birmingham - a city famous in its past for guns, cars, motorbikes and jewellery: a city of makers. He studied ceramics at the Central School of Art, London. His teachers included Gordon Baldwin and Dan Arbeid who encouraged skills and making of all types, from hand-building to industrial techniques as possible means of artistic expression. Ian’s own teaching and exhibiting in the UK, Europe and the Far East has provided opportunities to produce work as a response to different places and cultures.
