Thomas’s fascination with the form and texture of wood is evident in his work; replicating wood is not his goal, it is the starting point that takes him from the wood turning lathe to the plaster cast, to hand building and back to the lathe in an association of ideas that informs and educates as it evolves.
The memory of the living timber is evident in all his ceramic pieces, from the small rice bowls, to the calabashes, to the large sculptural pieces, all are abstracted from this same source. The biggest forms require thicker more textural glaze reminiscent of ancient trees, whereas the smaller pieces require lighter handling to accentuate the fine grain.
The work he produces has many applications, from the large organic forms that sit well in a conservatory, hotel foyer or garden to the small rice bowls that would fit into any domestic setting.
New work by Thomas Hopkins - Gibson will be in the gallery and on the website shortly.
