Jo Arnold - jo arnold ceramics etc
Handbuilt sculpture, mostly stoneware, slabbed and molded, incorporating found materials.
Forms are influenced by the transient places of shelter built by human beings on the move.
Structure is exposed. What lies behind the facade becomes important. The form these ideas take is always dictated by the clay. There's great pleasure in finding out what clay can do when stretched, torn, impressed and my first thoughts are modified and developed by this making process.
