Barry tends to work in series with familiar forms, influenced by natural phenomena, places, and emotions, developing ideas from drawing, painting and previous firings. He likes the warmth and brightness of earthenware using slip, oxides and underglazes, over a red clay body. The surfaces are created in layers, firing in between using thin washes, wiping back and building up rich zones of colour. He then glazes chosen areas to add further depth, tone and texture.
