The Angel's Share - current work
The Angel’s Share is an industry term for the portion of whisky lost in evaporation in the cask barrel. Here it is a metaphor for the poetics of the temporal soul. The soul is domestic. It likes a house and it daydreams in this cosy place. These daydreams share certain properties for the soul reflects on itself through form and image.

The rectangle is terrestial and the circle is aerial. There is cosmic tension between the two. These forms may be present as themselves or embedded in motifs such as a shallow box, a recessed lair, a window, a beaker. My distilled ceramic rectangles and circles are repeated images of interiority locating the angel’s share, within the viewer. It is the human spirit which is immense and sonorous .
The composition, colour and rhythm of the 3 dimensional assemblages are informed by early Italian Renaissance painting; namely Duccio di Buoninsegna’s (d.1319) Maesta in Siena Cathedral and Giotto di Bondone’s (d.1337) Arena Chapel frescoes in Padua. Gaston Bachelard's wonderful book The Poetics of Space is insightful. 

I run regular evening classes and taster workshops from my Glasgow studio. I also deliver mobile pottery classes and projects for adults and children in schools, hospitals and community settings. The projects often feature your local clay and a walk to explore the landscape.
