'And The Door Opened,' a ceramic project with Women @the Well
Women @the Well, (W@W,) is an organisation based in Kings Cross, London, that supports women who want to leave, 'exit,' prostitution. They have asked me to make some pots that illustrate the stories of the women they work with and get both the pots and the stories to as many people as possible. The aim is to take a little known or understood 'issue' and turn it into something more human - woman - and meaningful.
There is a small collection of pots available for direct sale - ie no gallery commission and no VAT.
All of them are signed with my potter's mark, the W@W logo, and the date. It's a bit like buying a share in the project with the pot as the 'share certificate.' In an ideal world, the pot gains in value but I can't promise that. I can tell you that these are significantly cheaper than my usual sale price. I have called this first group, 'The Garden Growing.' They are all black and white, 'drawing' pots, in white slip on black clay with sgraffito drawn lines.
