These sculptures are from my most recent body of work, ‘Knitting Pattern Folk’, which explore, as the name suggests, those wonderful quirky vintage knitting patterns which were part of my domestic childhood. Having collected them for decades, fascinated by the curious drama portrayed in the weirdly surreal photographic tableaux, these new pieces use the images as starting points to explore interaction between figures, props and backdrop. They all involve a painterly decorative use of slip and sgraffito upon the warm terracotta body of the clay.
