bowls...

Jo's bowls are hand formed using a combination of pinching and carving. The natural processes of the clay such as cracking and warping are incorporated as part of the essence of the bowls. They vary in scale with most being hand or even finger sized. She finishes them with a selection of slips, stains and lustres. They have an archaeological feel as Jo explores themes of making at the core of the human experience. That they are hand held and hand worked gives them a primeval quality, enabling them to communicate from hand to hand.
