The Norse Horse

£1,700.00 £1,350.00


A stoneware ceramic bust of an Icelandic horse.  Unglazed on the outside with a manganese wash, but interior surfaces glazed with a rich, dark, copper and colbalt glaze.

The horse is a development from equine figureheads that I made for Norse Boat Sculptures.

The head is designed to be set upon a metalic bar, the weight of the piece balances evenly.    A chrome bar will be supplied with the sculpture.  This will need to be set into stone, wood or concrete.

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.
