Small closed ceramic sculpture with arched shape and dark grey & blue surface decoration.


Approx size 14x12x8 cm.


My inspiration comes from the contrasted juxtaposition of the old and new; the smooth, matte finish of modern structures against the weathered, worn and abandoned old brick buildings. This fascination has influenced the surface decoration - the use of slips, oxides and underglazes in layers created by multiple firings has created a rich, earthy finish to the pieces. Details of common architecture styles are referenced, such as now dis-used factories and the remnants of the once thriving steel industry. 

Ceramic sculptures are all one-of-a-kind products, where no two will be made the exact same. All pieces are designed & handmade by Meghan Downs. 
Ceramics are made using the slab building technique, and have surface decoration with coloured slips, oxides and underglazes. Pieces are intended for decoration purposes only.
