‘Ash' by Fred Valentine

From the Artist
"The following pieces are related to the concept of a collective hope. A hope of change the shared feeling that all have at this present time for things to progress meaningfully. The pots do not draw on or resemble a specific motif in regard to the landscape around us however due to form; they allow us, the observer to look outward onto the dark, course and burnt surface and then inward into the blue and white. Us, a symbol of hope."
About the Artist
Fred Valentines work is primarily driven by form and shape much of which is influenced by Japanese style. It seeks to provide a bridge between functionality and attraction, melancholy and joy.
All work is wheel thrown then gas fired to stoneware temperatures ^7-10+ with body and glaze reduction being a focus.
Fred is a Brisbane based artist working out of his home studio in Bardon.
