Finally, I want to share with you my love of the work of Jennifer Lee. I encountered her work first of all at an exhibition in 2013 at Erskine Hall and Co. I was mesmerised by the simplicity of her burnished forms. I love the way that her vessels seem to hardly touch the surface on which they sit. They almost float and yet the colours and the treatment of the clay implies a kind of fragile solidity which I love. She features in a book which I reach for frequently when I am looking for inspiration: Modern British Potters and Their Studios by David Whiting and whenever I turn to her page the first thing that springs to mind – a bit like a head rush – is ‘That’s what I am aiming for!
Enjoy her work and look her up!
