Twig Pots Revisited
1 Nov – 3 Dec, 2017
Opening: Wednesday 15 November
Harking back to those days when more than a few could recognise a dolomite speckle, and a display of twig pots was de rigeur - ours were mostly purchased from The Connoisseur - down in the basement of Dawsons the Jewellers. It seemed a fairly open form - anything that a piece or three of dried shivvery grass or lichen- covered stick could be poked in to, and arranged in an unarranged kind of way.
I added substantially to the collection with my first potteries - many became either garden ornaments or twig pots. It is a free form - heading towards sculpture - open-ended, any- ended and not requiring water tightness, handes or any of that stuff.
