Jane Perryman’s ceramic work investigates the vessel as an abstract form and draws on her research into the traditional pottery making and firing techniques of village India.
The quintessential round bottomed pot form is designed to sit on a mud floor or on a
three- pronged cooking stove. Perryman had adopted its qualities of balancing on a tiny point where it sits on a flat surface, enabling it to rock from side to side without falling over
as it comes back to its centre of gravity. The form is both vulnerable and secure. The
composite pieces also reference contemporary urban structures such as buildings,
walls and bridges, exploring tension and balance where the two forms are placed
together. They are not static and invite interaction through repositioning into new
arrangements and compositions.

A Journey from East to West features the artist’s ceramic sculpture as well as a DVD
film and documentary photographs of Indian potters at work.
