DESCRIPTION

Thick and Thin explores the diversity of form in the work of two of Lillstreet’s most popular artists. Bob Briscoe works thick-strong forms, faceted and fluted surfaces, heavily applied, crackling slips. His work typifies solidity and strength in the ceramic form. Eric Jensen works thin – light, elegant forms constructed of fantastically thin clay slabs embellished with delicately printed designs.
