'still life'
2D pictures

Nancy Angus has recently been working with the theme of 'still life', groups of pots and bottles which relate to each other.

Her ceramic forms are based on ancient Egyptian and Greek pots and organic forms, the surfaces on the dry, chalky feel of frescoes and tomb paintings and the work of Cy Twombly, Rothko and Tapies.

A recent development in Nancy Angus’ work is 2D pictures. The images have grown out of her love of drawing and observations made both in her garden and of objects collected while on walks. The pictures are constructed from carved clay ‘drawings’ which are attached to a painted wood background. They have suggested narratives but leave it to the viewer to decide to what the story might be.

Nancy Angus occasionally produces a range of press-moulded, batch production candle-holders.
