Rich Hues of Blue – Full of Energy

Frances-ReachingForTheStarsWe have some lovely blues in the gallery this month. Full of energy, there is nothing melancholic about these pieces. This vessel by Frances Spice positively shines with a combination of a rich dark blue and gold lustre. It is called ‘Reaching for the stars’.

From sky to sea. Richard Glass makes wonderfully fluid sculptures inspired by water like his ‘Splash‘ sculptures and vases.spalsh_vase_blue -web

Delan Cookson uses the sea as his inspiration from his studio overlooking the Hayle estuary. His own recipe bright blue glaze on his porcelain vases and bowls has become his trademark and his work is widely collected.delan cookson candlestick This candlestick is a rather unusual piece for Delan and based on balusters.

Sarah-LustreHousesSarah McCormack is mostly known for her ‘stroppy clocks‘. But her further ceramic works have a large ever-growing and devoted following, too. These ‘Houses on a Hill‘ in copper and blue, raku fired, are a good reason why. Her work encourages to play and combine in quirky ways. These houses are separate from the ‘Hill’ and can be rearranged.

Hamlin and wright glass panelThe walls should not be neglected. Hamlin and Wright have a range of very energetic glass wall panels.
