Above are my initial drawings for the Triptych of urns inspired by the urns at The John Soanes Museum in London. This triptych is a portrait of myself, Spring, Summer & Autumn. Each piece I make is fired 5 times layering with slips, glazes and oxides. I have taken inspiration from the Georgian obsession with collecting and the age of enlightenment, from shells, crystals and insects to body parts and ritualistic paraphernalia.
