‘Geography’ (No. 2 in a set of educational subjects’ pieces)’
is a press moulded piece which is has been made from joining two sections and has a lid. This piece is representative of the world as seen through artistic and cultural endeavor within different continents ; in as far as it is possible within the constraints of the size of the piece. It is made from white-earthenware/white St Thomas clay, which stands approximately 45cm high x 30cm wide. The decorations on the side showing different styles of art have been incised into the piece, then the piece has been fired to 1160 c. Black glaze has been rubbed into the carving and wiped away, as well as coloured glazes which have been applied to the surface area before being fired to 1080c. Coloured enamels, gold lustre, platinum lustre, mother-of-pearl lustre and enamel transfers, have then been applied to some areas of the outside and fired again to 800c. The lid is a bowl in itself, which has two hands holding three mini worlds as juggling balls. The world, we thought before Covid-19, was in our hands and yet we did very little. Although the top of the piece has many transfers of flags from different countries the most important flags which cross all continents, stick out of the top of the piece as in a sand castle.
It is named, signed and dated by the artist February 2020.
