Antennae

detail of thrown antennae by jon williams

I love making these!!! – so much fun to produce! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿงก

They start life on the potters wheel as thin, solid cones. Texture is added whilst the clay spins and each one finally curled from the tip down.

Theyโ€™re insect antennae, added to the bodies of sculptural bees, bugs and snails. ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿœ ๐ŸŒ

That said, I reckon they hold their own as mini-sculptures reminiscent of unfurling ferns or organic iron work.

Contemporary Ceramics Shop

I have a collection of bee and bug shakers for sale at Contemporary Ceramics in London

The gallery is the shop window for the Craft Potters Association of Great Britain (CPA) and exhibits the greatest collectible names in British ceramics alongside the most up and coming artists of today.

Iโ€™ve been a professional member of the CPA ever since the start of my career as a maker, but this is the first time I have exhibited in their bi-monthly Rotation programme.

Although the gallery is currently closed during Lockdown, they have developed an amazing and comprehensive online shop featuring the work of 80 makers for sale at any one time.

Check it out!
