This vase has been hand made by potter David Garland for the collection accompanying the exhibition Barbara Hepworth: Sculpture for a Modern World at Tate Britain (24 June – 25 October 2015). The hand thrown form, with its beaten sides and sgraffito decoration, has been designed to echo the work of Barbara Hepworth.
Each piece is thrown on the wheel, then slipped a stone colour, which is slightly darker on the the outside than within.The decoration is drawn through the slip to the terracotta clay body beneath. The pot is fired to earthenware temperature.
David Garland has exhibited in solo exhibitions at the Redfern Gallery, the Crafts Council and the Besson Gallery, among others, and in New York with Kate Ganz. He divides his time between painting and making domestic pottery and studio ceramics.
Approximately 21 cm (height) x 9 cm (width at top). As the pots are made individually, the size, form and decoration will vary.
The short film and stills have been provided by David’s son Jack Garland.
