Wheal Prosper Engine House 1860
This work draws its inspiration from the Cornish landscape - both natural and manmade. The natural environment is a constant source of inspiration for form, colour and texture for work in clay and results in many different outcomes. The Engine House Bottles are influenced by the architecture of the pump houses for the now discarded tin mines. Geometric marks on their surfaces refer to industrial activity and the use of clay slips and metal oxides echo the colour and texture of the landscape.
The work is once fired in a reduction atmosphere to Orton cone 10.
