Surface quality and pattern with hidden detail combined with multi viewing points have always been of interest to me.
My pieces have evolved from the use of layers and colour and I am still very much interested in hidden detail and surface quality. I like the suggestion of what might have once been and archaeological finds and remains with their contrast in materials and surfaces have led to where I am at today. The use of glaze has become more important and their action upon the various clays, stains, oxides and slips are crucial to the final result.
Each piece is formed from slabs which are built up using layers of different clays, some printed with plaster blocks, some coloured with oxide or stain and others plain. They are placed face down and joined together from the back and then more colour is either added when the piece is turned over, after it is constructed or after the biscuit firing. A number of glazes are used on each panel or vessel to achieve the variety of colour response and some are fired 3 or 4 times to achieve the desired finish.
The pieces are meant to be touched, their tactile quality and surface contrasts are an integral part of the final intention.
New work by Philip Jolley will be in the gallery and on the website shortly.
