WESTON VESSELS

Three ceramic vessels in copper and cobalt oxide 1.85m x 1.50m 2.00m x 75m 190m x 85cm sited outside The Gallery Vero Beach, Florida, USA, 2007.

This installation was commissioned as a permanent installation by the Weston Family to coincide with the Miami Art Fair 2003 and the opening of an exhibition by American Artist Ed Ruscha. These are massive ceramic forms to be made in one piece and took several months to hand coil and fire.

Preparatory pen and ink drawings, from notebook, ideas for glazes.
