Artist: Murude Mehmet

Statler & Waldorf Hare Mates – Earthenware sculptures with blue oxide (26cm-12cm-20.5cm)

“I love to create! Especially with clay, my emotional connection with the raw material provokes excitement to produce something beautiful. I use luscious glazes by layering and firing many times; the colour glazes bleed and entwine creating a picture of nature, the sky, planets and the universe”

Radio City. Leaded and painted glass.  Based on carpet design for Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

“The techniques and tools I’ve used to make stained glass are the same as those which were being used in the medieval period. This is my last exhibition in this medium. I am continuing to explore my interest in design and colour but through the medium of fabric arts”

Red Sky -earthenware pot (18cm-20cm) blue ocean and red glaze with crystals
