Pot of the Month - JUne 2009
CURATOR’S CHOICE - POT OF THE MONTH
TIM ANDREWS - Tall Resist Humbug
Tim Andrews has an international reputation as a raku potter. His ‘humbug’ pots in a variety of shapes and sizes have almost become the signature pieces of this elegant ceramicist.
The inward curve of the lip and the swell of the body enhanced by the minimal but perfectly accented lines create a vessel that is sensuously tactile and visually stunning. It is a pot with great presence and clearly deserves its own space.
This pot transcends the debate about art versus craft, traditional versus modern or post modern – it is simply a thing of beauty.
