The words on this ceramic artwork are from a beautiful protest poem by Chris.
In the warm space you made for me
I hide, guilty for those we left outside
Wishing our table was bigger
That every mouth was filled
Every refugee was home
Like we are
It makes quite s statement, enhanced by the bread and soup and the broken circle around it.
The clay is stoneware and the letters are stamped in while the clay is still wet and the lines drawn in by a sharp stick. It is dried slowly between plasterboard and then fired. The colours added in this artwork are gentle, some underglazes, some soft glazes, to enhance the words. Once fired, the piece was framed by Chris and the colours lifted by the white painted frame.
We know this is a bold statement but it’s one that means so much to us. Every piece that sells with this poem on, we make at least a £50 donation to the wonderful charity Refuweegee.
