Alan Lacovetsky, Oak Hammock: Ceramics
Venue Section: Penthouse Level/4th Floor
More than 40 years working in clay provides me with a rich avenue of creative expression. I fire using a wood-burning and salt glaze kiln producing utilitarian pottery and sculpture with clay that I mix myself. Some of my materials are made from locally sourced wood ashes and iron scale. The wood flame creates an effect of natural surfaces and soft colours. I want my pots to be powerful statements of beauty but calming and gentle at the same time.
