‘Tall Thrown Pot’
2004

Bold, expressionistic markings characterise this
pot by Simon Carroll, both in its surface decoration
and in the handling of the clay itself. Drawing on
early slipware and earthenware traditions, Carroll
exaggerated the marks typically left by the potter’s
hands in a celebration of the physicality of making.

Made in Shucknall, Herefordshire
Earthenware, thrown and press-moulded,
with slip decoration and honey glaze
Museum no. C.26-2005 [2009]
