This piece incorporates bold blue and orange squares echoing the structure of the Blue Devon Tartan woven exclusively by Coldharbour Mill using heritage machinery and processes. The vessel is hand-built using slabs of earthenware clay and then covered in layers of slips and glazes to bring a sense of history to the surface. It is inspired by the 100-year-old power looms at the factory and the repetition of the warp (vertical) and weft (horizontal) lengths of wool which make up the structure and pattern of tartan fabric. Weft II belongs to my Coldharbour Collection which is a series of unique one-off limited edition ceramic sculptures inspired by my time at Coldharbour Mill, near Tiverton – one of the oldest working woollen mills in the UK – where I spent a year learning about the skilled job of weaving.
