Shirley Vauvelle

£62.00

Ceramic Sculpture by Shirley Vauvelle.

Dog & Heart 

Base 5.5 x 13.5 cm, Height 11 cm

Unique contemporary assemblages made from ceramic and driftwood pieces. 

Shirley creates wall hung and freestanding sculptures using white earthenware to hand build components, small creatures, birds and fish. Texture is embossed into the surface of leather dry slab rolled clay. After hand building a component it is bisque fired. Then under glazes and oxides are applied and rubbed away to give layers of colour. Fired again at a higher firing temperature. Components are then assembled together with driftwood, wire, vintage maps to create a narrative giving the components a harmonistic relationship with the reclaimed materials.
