I was inspired while watching The Great Pottery Throwdown to make a picture of the Gladstone Pottery Museum where the series is filmed, with the iconic bottle kilns that Stoke-on-Trent is famous for. The picture is all copper. Flame coloured on the kilns and buildings and alcohol ink on the copper sheet background.
I’ve also made a piece with copper butterflies painted with alcohol ink that I call ‘The Great Escape’ as one butterfly is outside the frame representing that it’s either escaped or hasn’t yet been pinned to the board. It’s up to the viewer to decide.
