Alex McCarthy is inspired by textures that surround us such as; tree bark, natural rocks, cracking paint and even marine life.


Metal oxides add depth whilst the gold, platinum and copper lustre adds a sense of opulence.


No two pieces are ever the same


Each item is fired several times due to the different temperatures in which Alex fires; this gives him the opportunity to re-fire vessels to add more oxide or lustre.
