Sally's ceramics are derived from various influences in her life, allowing her to develop a very personal series of vessels built on memories and experiences from her life, but which also draw on the rich history of ceramics and the part it has played in many societies, central to the celebration of day to day lives. The robust form and external decoration of the dark stoneware vessels contrasts with the highly decorated interiors, giving a journey through fondly remembered china.
Excavating at various archaeological sites many years ago brought her in close contact with the pottery of ancient civilisations from Roman Italy, Medieval Britain and Pre-Inca Peru. Her exploration of form and external design has developed from this inherent knowledge and she has developed a family of vessels, with the addition of ribs, knobs and carving on the basic moulded forms to reflect the historical form of metal, stone and ceramic vessels from the neolithic to neoclassical periods.
A fundamental concept for the vessels was to develop a highly contrasting 'lining' to the bowls, to evoke the silk and lace of a half hidden petticoat or the unexpected lining of a coat; to create something delicate, or even a touch of bling.
She uses traditional methods to give a variety of decorative techniques, including under-glaze painting in cobalt oxide, hand painted gold lustre, hand drawn decals and under-glaze wax resist.
New work by Sally Streuli will be in the gallery and on the website shortly.
