Maker in Focus: Alex McCarthy

29 April to 17 June 2017

Maker in Focus: Alex McCarthy

Alex McCarthy's work is inspired by tactile qualities and textures that surround us such as; tree bark, natural rocks, cracking paint and even marine life. Each artwork is thrown and fired several times: metal oxides add depth whilst the gold, platinum and copper lustre add a sense of opulence.

Alex says: 'No two pieces are ever the same; this is intentional. Each piece has its own story to tell. I want the viewer to interact with the work through touch and perhaps see if they can feel the pots journey'.

Alex has a First Class Honours from the Cardiff School of Art and Design and has won several awards including the Craft & Design Selected Makers Award. He also completed the Crafts Council's prestigious Hothouse programme for the best new talent in crafts.
