The Gateway of Dreams is a two metre high, ceramic sculpture made in two contrasting brick clays from the Bristol district of the UK - Shortwood and Almondsbury Red. The Shortwood clay was fired in an oxidising atmosphere and the Almonsbury Red was fired in reduction after being partially coated with coloured sand.
Sited at the Bath School of Art and Design, Sion Hill, Bath.
Created for Fresh Air Sculpture 2019, "Fold' is a new, large-scale, ceramic sculpture made and fired at Ibstock. The surface colour moves from reds, through purples to a slate grey and was achieved by a combination of adding colour sands and inducing localised reduction during the firing.
The concept behind "Fold" came from the thought experiment of considering the simplest method of moving from two dimensions to three dimensions.
