Unfinished (Barcelona pot)
David was the inveterate experimenter who revelled in the fact that no two pieces would ever be quite the same and that there would always be another surprise around the corner – another variant on a familiar form, another quirk of the glaze – that would delight him. For those who followed David’s work, the sheer unpredictability of his output was part of his great attraction as a potter.
The Barcelona Pot was made to a large scale (W35cm H60cm). This pot is a perfect example of one of David’s big scale ornamental pots, produced once it was less necessary for him to create so many saleable items.
Other pots of this scale are also shown here.
