Henri Matisse
Still Life, Painting, Oil on canvas, 89.5×116.3 cm
Origin: France, Circa 1910/1911


These are two of the three ceramics pieces that I produced. The forms were inspired by the Plinth pieces of Brancusi and the painting I chose were Matisse and Derain, in the painting style on ceramics of Betty Woodman, as she has definite brush strokes, that are rough, rather than refined and smoothed edges.

I discovered during this task that I particular like painting in the style of Impressionists and abstract painters. I was apprehensive that the feathered edges of my brushwork would change after the firing and was so relieved that they remained.
