These unique sculptures by Janette Fry
are made of stoneware slabs which are first marked with a variety of tools and found artifacts. They are then torn, cut, twisted and joined at random. After that other pieces are attached until the work takes on its final form. Some of the sculptures become figurative and others more abstract; they may capture a feeling or seem to have a life of their own.
This sculptural work is usually fired several times in order to get the desired surface patina and colours. Janette likes to use glazes which give an aged, weathered appearance along with the odd shiney section and occasional pictoral image or touch of gold leaf.
