twist vessel

This is Twist Vessel by Matthew Chambers, from the exhibition True to Form at the Grace Barrand Design Centre in Nutfield, Surrey.  On his website, Matthew describes his vessel sculptures as follows:

Sculptural vessel forms best viewed from above. The pattern on each piece carries from the top inside the form. All works are made from coloured stoneware clay and are constructed using sections thrown on the potters wheel. Each piece is high fired and polished and the work ranges from 15 - 30cm in width and from 10 - 35cm in height

Matthew’s personal statement on his CV states:

I am influenced by geometric and constructivist art, architecture, and design. I use these interests in abstract to explore shape and form by building constructed sculptures in clay. The aim on completion is that each individual piece will convey unique properties of space, light, and colour, and will sustain an expression of abstract and rhythmical beauty from the pattern of the shapes within.

I think he is only partially successful in meeting his stated objective, as there is an element of uniformity across his pieces. The exhibition ends tomorrow, and this particular piece will set you back £300.
