Stephen Murfitt Ceramics.

My work is driven by an obsession with clay and it’s versatility. I make ceramic forms and vessels which are hand-built and Raku fired.

‘I became addicted to Raku because of the direct involvement with each stage of the process. The pots absorb and often reflect the intense drama of the firing.’

Influences are diverse and come from a fusion of visual elements seen in the natural and built environments. The effects of weathering and decay provide a constant source of reference.

Small groups of related forms are hand-built simultaneously, the slow and contemplative pace of coiling allowing for considered developments and refinements to be made.
