CREATURES/GIG LAVERY | TDP GALLERY
AUGUST 23 - SEPTEMBER 29, 2018
My inspiration comes from my love of animals, nature and the pottery of primitive cultures with its relationship to the animal world and its simplicity of design. When I take a handful of clay and sculpt it I have no set plan on what I’m going to create; what emerges, emerges. This is what has kept me fascinated and intrigued for many years while working in the medium. People’s responses to my work have been what creature is this? My reply is whatever you see it to be. Working in stoneware I apply layers of oxides to the surface of my pieces to evoke a feeling of an archeological find.
