from Saturday 19th September - Sunday 15th November
According to Lotte Glob it is the easiest - and the most difficult - work to throw a bowl:
The most elemental act in pottery is the making of a bowl ~ it is easy, challenging, a delight to throw on the wheel ~ yet extremely difficult to achieve the near perfect bowl ~ I have to be calm and let it flow like poetry ~ in my mind I see the shape ~ a closed bowl or a wide open bowl ~ depending on my feeling at the time.
Bowls go through many processes ~ you might have the perfect shape with an unperfected glaze ~ or a bad shape with a perfect glaze ~ or a perfect shape and glaze, yet with a slight imperfection ~ no bowl is perfect, apart from the bowl with a slight imperfection.
I cannot make just one bowl ~ like ceramic paintings ~ I capture within my bowls the land and the sea.
rough and smooth ~ wild and serene ~ calm and chaos ~ the contrast of life.
Passion is the key to this stunning work, created for this exhibition at the Watermill these bowls and ceramic paintings show a lifetime of expertise and an ever deepening connection to the earth and to the sea.
