Shimmy Shake, 2021 – Stoneware Clay
‘Shimmy Shake’ is one in a series of experiments in how to bring a sense of movement to a static object, to what is essentially a piece of stone once fired. Shimmy Shake achieves this by creating a sense that a breeze has just ruffled the delicate individual fronds of the skirts of the pot and that they could move again at any moment. Shimmy Shake is both a functional vase, and a piece that can still be viewed as complete while empty. The purpose of this is to ensure that the vase is as useful and enjoyable as it can be. Materials are precious, the things we make with them should be able to be used in our lives as much as possible.
