Origins and Evolution is part of Julie Cromwell’s ongoing study of the ceramic vessel’s physical form and their embodiment of intangible qualities such as the spatial, sensual and ethereal.
This new body of work acknowledges the lineage and historical aspects of the artists chosen medium, drawing on forms from antiquity and the age-old ideals of harmony and proportion.
Cromwell marries the contemporary techniques of the textured crawl glaze with the reference to the passing of time; surface tensions peel away revealing the body of the vessel. Working with the elements earth, fire and water and the seasonal changes the artist has harnessed these natural phenomena and distilled them into this refined new series.
