Jack’s technical process is key to the resulting work, using the space within the kiln to develop a new colour palette and surface texture unique to each form. Created using one clay, one colouring mineral and a single soda firing, Jack has simplified and refined his making process, stripping away unnecessary elements to produce work with depth and complexity.
Each piece is hand thrown and finished with a unique surface of pale blues and earthy browns in mixture of glossy and matt textures.Dimensions: h 8cm x w 12cm x d 10cm
As all products are handmade sizes and colour may vary slightly.
Inspired by archetypal vessel forms, Jack Doherty’s recent works explore contemporary ceramics place in the changing world. Jack explains “I want my pots to inhabit our domestic spaces in the light, shadow and darkness with qualities that neither painting or abstract sculpture can.”
Jacks work has been exhibited widely in the UK and abroad in galleries such as National Craft Gallery Ireland, Mashiko Musuem Japan, Bornholm Denmark, Saatchi Gallery London and was the winner of the Janet Mansfield Memorial Award in 2016.
