Large scale sculptures created for group exhibition 2019

After the success of the group exhibition 'Exquisite Bodies' at the Yorkshire Artspace Gallery, I am really pleased to share images of my new large-scale sculptural range.

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.
