Morag MacInnes Round Platter - Mermaid Diving
Morag MacInnes makes both domestic ware - earthenware plates, platters, and pots - and smoke-fired dogs and other sculpture, mermaids and chests. Morag is interested in myths archetypes and symbolic imagery that reoccurs across time, countries and continents. Primitive and ancient cultures appeal to her and she enjoys creating a humourous new twist on old themes.
She wants to make objects with resonance that feel as if they have existed before, objects that capture the essential nature of the story whether a light joke or a dark secret. She has a studio in Bristol where she lives and a studio in Andalucia where she spends several months each year. She has had many exhibitions in the UK and in Spain.
Morag MacInnes makes earthenware plates and pots using a coloured slip base with underglaze and oxide decoration.
