At first glimpse I thought that the work might be derivative, Grayson Perry-a-like; but I quickly realised that this is a wholly superficial view. The works are similar in so far as they are ceramics which have a social message. But Taylor's pieces very much have a glow of personal authenticity, and made a powerful impression. There are dramatic large pots with figurative narrative as well as purely decorative slipware pattern, and striking smaller pieces with an individual figure - in this case called Portrait Pots (Persephone) - both as photographed below by Michael J Davis.
The outing provided an uplifting break from the huge pile of photographs which I'm scanning. The task I have set myself is to digitise all my photos so that I can discard the physical prints - as well as sorting through them at the same time.
