Degree Show Vases

I created these vases during my final year of study at Sheffield Hallam University on my Fine Art course for my Degree show in summer 2018. The thinking behind these creations was to channel my own travel experiences into physical ceramic objects. I chose to make vases as I take great inspiration from artist Grayson Perry and challenged myself to construct something large scale which would act as a spacious clay canvas to paint on images from my memories and photos. These four vases are like giant ceramic postcards completely personal to me and my own experiences in the world. I loved every moment of making them, although difficult at times. They were my proudest achievement at University.
