Tree by Chris Turrell
A ceramic sculpture inspired by Modernist architecture and organic forms.
Dimensions: (W) 29 x (D) 11.5 x (H) 33.5 cm
"These playful pieces explore balance, shape and space often creating sculptures that are reminiscent of childhood building toys, Brutalist buildings and 1970’s sci-fi.
I make a selection of component parts that are assembled, joined and slotted together, using repetition and chance to make pieces that are lively, fluid and structural." - Chris Turrell
Staff Selection: Samantha Rhodes, Gallery Director
Sam says: "This is a very new body of work in which Chris is heavily influenced by architecture and there is a brutalism to some of the forms which I think works so well with the surface texture of the stoneware clay and palette of colour he’s created using underglazes and oxides. I’d happily live with this piece."
