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.
