Overview

"I’m inspired by British maritime history and 20th-century art, and the paintings of Alfred Wallis are a big influence."

There is a definite Alfred Wallis feel to the sgraffito pieces created by Anne Barrell featuring merchant ships, sailing boats, fishing trawlers and all things to do with the sea and coast. Rum cups, pedestal bowls, paltters, and jugs have hand-painted boats and ships traversing stormy seas or sheltering in tree-lined harbours. As each piece is hand-made and painted, they all have their own unique character.

The ceramics are made from red earthenware clay thrown on the potter's wheel, and hand built from slabs, and then painted with a layer of white liquid clay known as slip. Images are scratched through the white layer revealing the red clay beneath.​
