Brian Holland

I respond to clay’s ability to reflect and express my physical, tactile and spacial experiences, life’s gutsy feeling of figures, space, sea land rocks and mountains.

As I work I respond to the clay’s ability to reflect and express my physical,tactile and spatial experiences Experiences of figures in space, of sea and land, rocks and mountains and the whole gutsy feeling of life. I spread clay out on plaster sheets, or grab lumps of the stuff press holes in it, pinch it, squeeze it, coli it, and in whatever ways manipulate it and stop when the piece resonates with such an experience.

Although I have long had a city based studio I have now moved back into the city and the cityscape and the hustle and bustle of people is having an influence on the imagery of my work.

Much of my work is wood fired, some is fired in an electric kiln and some in a gas kiln but all is stoneware.
