Catalogue Note

We are grateful to the Artist's studio for their kind assistance with the cataloguing of the present work.

‘De Waal speaks of the light in the spaces between figures … I remember once in an exhibition of the paintings of Patrick Heron in the Tate gallery, realising that afterimages of the colours I was seeing – in complementary colours – were floating all around me in the air of the room. Something like that happens when I look at these pots – they make an earthly/unearthly light of their own.’
