Enhance outdoor lighting with a ceramic light. Add a candle to build ambience on a warm summer night.
The plastic nature of clay is often lost in the moulded production of pottery. With the Cuba lamp series I endeavoured to bring a sense of the soft, plastic nature of the clay while making a bold and functional form.
The Cuba Vase was made spontaneously by manipulating plastic clay. The clay was rolled out into a thick snake like roll, cut off and stood on end. My finger prints are still visible where the piece was lifted. From this core shape I fashioned the Cuba Jug and Cuba lights.
