No. 79, Tile mural, glazed, slipcast stoneware with gold lustre.

 

 

The theme I have used for my pieces has been influenced by my interest in steam locomotives:  The idea being to recreate some aspects of the steam locomotive, both external and internal.

 

 

The smoke-box at the front of the locomotive leant itself to becoming a clock, which incidentally is a good match for AGA Cookers

 Green Smoke Box Clock, 2010. Glazed, slipcast stoneware with gold lustre, approx 40cm diameter.

 

 

From the footplate I took the idea of making pressure gauges, which I then turned into wall lights - The light shinning from within the gauge, through a series of holes, to create a halo effect on the wall behind the gauge.
