Chris Turrell Ceramics

patterns & structures

Chris Turrell strives to discover patterns and structures found in architecture, nature and art, and express these through his ceramic practice. From Medieval cathedral floor plans, lace work and brutalist architecture, he finds a lifelong obsession emerging from looking at the similarities in repeated forms from across the ages.

Chris works to try to convey a sense of time, through layered and distressed surfaces, simple forms and colours. He carefully chooses coloured stoneware clays that reference building materials of the past like brick, concrete and blackened wood. He creates component parts from extruded, printed, stamped and inlaid stoneware clays and assembles them in either free-standing or wall mounted pieces.
