ALTERED SLATES OF PERCEPTION          

 

'These are some of my slates. The old, used ones are from a local farmhouse of two hundred years plus. Their patina suggests wondrous forms. These have been engraved and painted in oil with layers of laquer to protect them. In good weather they have been 'street dried' in the sunshine against the studio walls.

Each is unique. The emerging form cannot be predicted though headlands and waterways seem to be plentiful. Customers have been delighted with what each vision means to them.

The good thing about them is that they can be rotated to suit our own ideas.

It is wonderful to work with these old roof tiles, which have seen many changes in their lifetimes. Not only that but, after painting they are now renewed and glorious on the studio walls.

Some have been framed and secured with adhesive as they can be brittle and delicate. Others are left unframed and perhaps at a future date may be cemented into a wall of their own.

 

The average size of the tiles is 9" x 18"

 23 x 46 cms aprox.
