'Sea Creature II' pottery coastal-inspired shapes by Catriona Fitzgerald
Potter Catriona Fitzgerald was taken aback by the beauty of the coast and its natural environment after moving to live in Thanet on the East Kent coast. She created a new series of pieces in pottery, reflecting the shapes and colours of the beach, the sea, the seaweed and driftwood that she saw and collected on daily walks.
We hope you enjoy these very finely made, delicate pieces in our collection. Each is totally unique, a single item, and there is a variety of glazes and colours used.
This piece also reminds us of a floating organic creature - rising from a cylindrical base or stand, the clay spreads out with fine edges and is coloured with brown oxides and glaze. Sea Creature I and II make a fine pair of pieces.
The pottery is 6cm tall and 12cm across.
