Timothy Copsey

The Pennine landscape and seasons are the backdrop to everything I do. I make pottery that inhabits the border between function and sculpture: in essence vases, bowls, bottles and cups, although these are just ‘Serving Suggestions’. I adapt clays, slips and glazes with material found locally and the wood-firing process further develops the organic and elemental nature of the work. Work is multiply fired incorporating wood firing and lustre techniques. 

Described as beautifully ugly – I hope the work is playful and sometimes surprising if jarring and ultimately resonant of their materiality and the landscape from which they derive.
