Imagine, or remember, visiting local markets and the smells, colours, sounds and bustle of people in the place? This is my inspiration!
Inspired from visiting markets for local produce from land and sea her in UK and abroad. These market boxes of fish, fruit and vegetables are displayed in handmade wood boxes, lime waxed and distressed, to give a weathered feel of markets from long ago.
This work is designed to be displayed on the wall as sculptural wall art, and often sold in twos and threes or more for the real feel of a market display. Even a single box can bring colour and interest to your home!
Prices for these artworks range from £495 to £850 for the more complex mixed fruit and veg boxes. Each item in a box is handmade, no moulds used, and has several layers of slips, under glazes and glazes to get an intensity of colour - an intensity of work goes into them too!
