turquoise ring TV69Y136
£500.00 PRODUCT CODE:TV69Y136
This sinuous sculpture is hand-built in a pale blue stained earthenware clay body, and finished by meticulous burnishing which creates a soft sheen accentuating the form. The ring is skilfully fashioned so that it can move freely along the ‘handle’ of the form .
About this maker
As a rebellious schoolgirl, Tina always knew that she would go to art college as she absented herself from her maths lessons to go to exhibitions. In 1974, she commenced her BA in Ceramics at Bristol Polytechnic with a strong 2D portfolio but hardly any experience of working with clay and she found it challenging. Nevertheless, she was drawn to it because it was the only material which was so malleable, human, primal, intimate, flexible, fundamental, and could be adapted to suit all personalities.
