Most of Barry’s pots have been thrown and altered. His decoration is loosely applied with intense colour that he has emphasised with the use of black oxides and sgraffito lines that cut through the white slip to reveal the red body. The final touch is the way in which he often leaves the focal points of his pots unglazed.
