Artwork for James Burnett-Stuart
We Must Become Springtime People
I make domestic pottery. It is often thrown, sometimes scalloped or fluted. Sometimes decorated. Sometimes figurative. It’s sometimes good to not have the constraints of function.
It is freedom and play. Being alive. Work. A thread. Awake. In touch. Disappointment. Enthusiasm. .
James Burnett-Stuart , Sir Fielding French, Don Cleaver, Florida Baird and sometimes Lee Hildern
I just work on my own. The solitude is important.
