The power of an object to illicit a memory is intriguing and clay is a wonderful, pliable medium with which to express this. The pieces have evolved into series – Broken Memories, The Shoreline and the latest Transient Memories – have evolved. Each piece is different and evokes a fleeting memory of place.
The pieces in the Transient Memories series are hand built in earthenware and paper to a height of c70cm. The building of each one is a construction of memories and defined by the wax resist surface drawing.
The Broken Memories and Shoreline Series were exhibited, with part of Deborah’s souvenir collection in SOUVENIR, Aldeburgh: Memory as Object at the Aldeburgh Beach Lookout, Aldeburgh, Suffolk.
