Multiple surface treatments create depth and interest. Slip casting produces delicately refined forms. The inclusion of materials and use of coloured slips create patterns in the clay body. Imogen utilises a minimal colour palate, using a combination of oxides, glazes and lustres to create contrasting textures. The application of decals add a graphic narrative element to the work.
Dying For Dinner ~ 2011
This body of work was made in response to the issues of fishing discard and the effects on the oceans eco system. She went on to research the pacific soup; a gyre made entirely of waste. This lead to further investigation into our relationship with the oceans and was the basis of her second year degree project. The final piece was an installation made from a collection of precious bead like objects made in both ceramics and blown glass. Each element told a different part of the narrative.
Slipcast earthenware vessel. Exterior decorated with cobalt oxide and a white glaze net motif. The interior has been glazed. Individually applied hand drawn fish decals.
