“Rock Pool Garden”

Sale!

A large charger with red and blue copper glaze and green bottle glass in the interior.  Haematite sand on the rim and in the central dome which streams down into the glaze surface.

Reduction fired to 1300 degrees centigrade.

The liverish red copper and the bottle green exactly imatate the colour of small species of seaweed found in the rockpools around Caithness.  The haematite sand recreates the kelpy background, and the effect is of a watery garden in the rocks.

Jenny Mackenzie Ross

I have been working in clay for 30 years.  I studied sculpture, gaining my degree in 1985.  Then worked in different ceramics studios around Scotland.  These work experiences gave me a grounding in making thrown forms, and in the art of salt and wood firing. I set up my own studio, Northshore Pottery, in 1993.  It is perched in a far corner of the Scottish mainland.  Where the rugged east coast sweeps northward towards Wick, and the Orkney Islands beyond. It is a land of wild wilderness, jagged sandstone cliffs, and turbulent seas.  This landscape is fundamental to my work.  I see structures in the landscape everywhere from the sedimentary flagstone beds that undulate through the landscape, to microscopic lichens that cling to every rocky surface.  I walk with a sketch book, binoculars and a magnifying glass. Drawings are sources of ideas.  I make Sculpture, large thrown forms and tableware.  I fire my pieces using gas or salt and wood depending on the requirement of the piece.  I often use found materials and minerals from the landscape in the clay bodies and glazes.
