Working fast and freely is the essence of Dominic's work; rolling, tearing and manipulating the clay to inject the life and depth into it I wish to convey.
He finishes his sculptures with oxides and underglazes applied like watercolour with vibrant brush strokes to enhance the feeling of movement, and then also produces drawings in clay, scored through a surface layer of slip.
More recently Dominic has started to work in Indian Ink creating an amazing portfolio of dance inspired artwork.
Quote from the artist:
"I produce earthenware ceramic sculptures and paintings based on dance and movement.
Dance is a transient art, each moment fleeting and impermanent. It is this essence that I am trying to capture in my work."
