Swaddled Mauve

Bowl
1992 (made)
Artist/Maker
Place Of Origin

Judy Trims' vessels were constructed in a slow and controlled fashion, building from coils of clay into shapes that appeared to float or be air-borne. The fact that the work, delicate and fragile and balanced on a narrow foot, would have to be cosetted in order to avoid damage, appealed to her. The soft but lively palette of colours and vivid lustres present on this bowl are also signature aspects of her later work.
