Richard Phethean

Made in earthenware and slip-decorated, Richard Phethean pots explore contour and profile, clay as an assembly of cut elements, as well as an effective ground for his expansive abstract decoration. There is a process of construction and deconstruction about his work, as if he is analysing the structural nature of functional form, but doing it playfully, like the decorative still lifes of late Cubism.
