Project Description

Keith Varney

Porcelain is a challenging material to work with but the qualities of its surface, its translucency and almost ethereal nature when used in eggshell thin sheets has driven me to investigate its wide potential.

The interplay of changing light and the viewer’s perspective give rise to a shift in perception of the forms; their translucent nature allows the interiors to reflect a sense of luminosity.

Carefully controlled firing is required as the intense heat can affect the forms, sometimes quite dramatically. But when successful, can induce a seductive and almost organic movement in the finished piece.
